Prospective graduate students interested in continuing their studies at the MASc or PhD levels with research areas related to tribology of materials and surface engineering can apply to Engineering Materials Graduate Program and specify the area of specialization as "Tribology with NSERC/GM IRC". An overview of the requirements for the MASc and PhD programs in Engineering Materials at the University of Windsor is provided below:
Master of Applied Science (MASc) degree
The average period of study for the MASc program is 18 months. Research undertaken as part of the Master's program is normally directed and supervised by a Master's committee. Whereas the student's advisor provides day-to-day guidance and direction, the committee is responsible for the overall supervision to ensure that adequate progress is made. The Master's committee consists of three members.
Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree
Students pursuing a PhD degree will undertake a full time program of study for an average of four years. Research undertaken as part of the PhD program is normally directed and supervised by a doctoral committee proposed by the student's advisor subject to the approval of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research. The committee will consist of at least four members, with the student's advisor serving as chair.
