ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The program is rich with opportunities, for both M.S. and Ph.D. students, with a focus on modern computational and advanced data-analysis methods to study geophysical problems associated with atmospheric processes and ocean circulation, oil exploration and reservoir modelling, earthquake processes and crustal deformation. Students in this program receive broad training in numerical methods, mathematical modelling, and geophysics. M.S. students have an option to participate in scientific research activities that include computational and mathematical modelling or field-study projects (M.S. with thesis). Ph.D. candidates in the program conduct original research.

We invite you to explore our website to find out more about our graduate study programs and research groups.

MASTERS DEGREE

Can be a terminal graduate degree or may serve as a gateway to the Ph.D. program. The M.S. degree typically takes 18 months to complete, and is offered to both traditional full-time students and part-time students; for example, industry-sponsored students on semester-long company leaves.
