The Faculty of Science is currently reviewing its Research Priorities, that will re-emerge as Grand Challenges in early 2017. Ideas for grand challenges were solicited through a consultative process (online survey, email consultation, group and individual meetings) in late 2016 in which Science faculty, instructor stream and postdoctoral associates were invited to respond.

We look forward to sharing these soon with the community at large.

Research Themes and emergent areas that we are building on include:

  • Unconventional Oil and Gas Reservoirs
  • Unconventional use of coal
  • Solid Oxide Fuel Cells
  • Renewable Energy
  • Microbial Gasification
