The primary objective of the Master of Science (MSc) program in Applied Bioscience from University of Ontario Institute of Technology is to train students to become high-quality researchers at the interface between chemistry and biology. 


The graduate programs equip students with a wide array of both practical and conceptual scientific skills that prepare them for leadership roles in the life sciences. These goals are achieved through independent research and rigorous course work. The programs bring together students and faculty from a variety of scientific backgrounds, which further enriches the student learning experience. In addition, in keeping with the university's strategic plan, research is aimed at creating innovations that will improve the lives of Canadians.

Graduates from these programs are expected to have a breadth of knowledge in the life sciences, a depth of knowledge in their chosen field, and the scientific and technical skills that are essential for a career in research. It is also expected that graduates will continue to make significant contributions to the advancement of knowledge in their field and become lifelong scholars with an appreciation of the impact of science on society.


The Master of Science (MSc) program in Applied Bioscience from University of Ontario Institute of Technology capitalizes on the faculty's current research expertise which is reflected in four fields:
  • Biomolecular Science
  • Ecosystem Health
  • Forensic Bioscience
  • Human Health Biology
These fields are interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary in nature and require students to rely on both chemistry and biology research methods in order to answer specific research questions.
