Programs Offered in Nanoscience
  • Minor or Concentration in Nanoscience

Note: If applications exceed the capacity of the Minor and Concentration in Nanoscience, priority will be given to students in satisfactory standing in the BSc or BSc (Honours) in Applied Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biological Sciences, Cellular, Molecular and Microbial Biology, Chemistry, Chemical Physics, Ecology, Geology, Geophysics, Physics, Plant Biology or Zoology.

Program vs. Faculty Regulations

Regulations governing the Minor or Concentration in Nanoscience are a combination of general Faculty of Science regulations and the additional program specific regulations listed below. It is essential for students to be familiar with both sets of regulations. It is helpful to read Section 3 (Faculty Regulations) first.

Students should consult Academic Requirements in their Student Centre periodically to ensure that requirements are being met.
