CREATE programs offer a unique combination of traditional graduate programming and experiential learning to support a seamless transition into industry.
The Faculty of Science is proud to offer three NSERC CREATE graduate programs. These programs provide students with enhanced training and learning opportunities that complement their regular graduate programs and increase their readiness for careers in non-academic and/or academic sectors. These programs are open to both MSc and PhD students.
All of our CREATE programs offer a unique combination of traditional graduate programming and experiential learning to set new graduates up for success.
Internships, field work, and soft-skills training, are just some of the supplementary experiences on offer in addition to access to some of the finest research facilities in the world, with training and mentorship.
These programs focus on a special area of study, often with cross-disciplinary elements.
The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) administrates the Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) grant to support the development of innovative graduate training programs with the aim to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration, address scientific challenges associated with Canada’s research priorities, and to facilitate the introduction of highly-skilled, productive employees into the Canadian workforce.
