Prospective Students

Doctoral and Master Research:

Prior to applying to our team, it is encouraged that prospective research students first review our current research described on this website, and then to email Dr. Gales to chat on possibilities and openings.

As of November 2019, our team is very interested in recruiting graduate students into Timber / Concrete / Steel based projects, or characterizing human behaviour in emergency conditions. We have three positions (2 Masters and 1 PhD) that we are looking to fill. Interested people are encouraged to inquire!  You can learn more here.

  • relevant skills and experience;
  • career goals;
  • and a note on your opinions on the topic of ‘Enhancing Inclusion and Diversity in engineering’.

Dr. Gales will reply if there is a fit!

Canadian (Domestic) and International Funding:

Team members may be provided with highly competitive research stipends to carry out their work fully funded (tuition paid plus a living stipend). Our team has also had a successful record of supporting students with additional scholarships. We have had 48 major scholarships awarded to team members in the last 4 years.

Undergraduate and CO-OP Internships:

We are a strong believer in undergraduate research opportunities and generally hire about 6 undergraduate students annually. Our team has been successfully awarded 12 NSERC USRA scholarships in the last 3 years.

Distance learning in Canada:

Inquire with Dr. Gales if this method of graduate education can work for you. This is usually for Doctoral applicants currently working in practices across Canada.
