In fulfilling its commitment to research excellence and offering undergraduate and graduate teaching responsive to the needs of students and employers, Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science has assembled a team of exceptionally qualified faculty. The majority of faculty members have PhDs in engineering or the physical sciences, and are engaged in research of international standing relevant to the programs being taught by the faculty.

A fundamental objective is to ensure the value of our programs, graduates and research activities to industry. With this in mind, a number of our faculty have been recruited from senior positions in the nuclear industry and bring with them the contacts, knowledge and insights required to lead the long-term development of the faculty and nuclear technology education in Canada.
