Industry Connections


The research interests at Western Science span a wide range of interests from the role of interstellar dust black holes create to the design and fabrication of nano-structured surfaces for leading edge biological applications.  To get a glimpse of the research activities within our departments, centres and institutes, you can download this document (PDF, 12.1 MB). For a more in depth look at our broad based approach to research, please explore the options offered under research. Many industries can benefit from establishing a relationship with Western Science such as the case with game developer Big Blue Bubble.


The Internship Program is not simply an alternative co-op program - it is an in-depth means of developing valuable industry contacts and a well-paying work experience for our undergraduates. Interns gain educational experience through mentoring by professionals, being part of a team and accumulating experience that directly relates to their career objectives. Internship placements can vary widely as they are tailored to the individual needs of employers and interns. Employment opportunities may include public or private sectors.

Employers may create internship opportunities for students in any of our departments in the Biological and Medical Sciences, Mathematical and Computational Sciences or Physical Sciences.
