This research-oriented program will provide you the opportunity to make a significant contribution to innovations in the field. The University is a focus for foreign industries developing new technology.

Admission Requirements

Applicants must have a master’s degree in physics, or an equivalent degree.

In some cases, the program director may require students to do qualifying coursework depending on their previous training.

Applicants must have a grade point average of at least 3.00 out of 4.33 or the equivalent as recognized by Université Laval. 

French proficiency

The language of instruction at Université Laval is French. Hence, a good knowledge of written and spoken French is highly recommended. 

English proficiency

Although knowledge of French or English is not a prerequisite for admission, students must be able to read and understand texts in French or in English to successfully complete this program. Students who are not proficient enough in these languages may have difficulty in their studies. Students must ensure that they have a good understanding of French or English and, if necessary, take steps to improve their language skills during their studies (for example at Université Laval’s language school). In the event of significant deficiencies, program direction can impose corrective measures.
