One of our great strengths is that we engage undergraduates in our research very early in their education.
The Faculty of Science is committed to providing its students with a quality education emphasizing personal attention, choice and flexibility! Students can expect opportunities for practical hands on experience across a spectrum of science disciplines in the classroom, in the lab, and in the field. In addition, there are opportunities for students to work with nationally and internationally recognized professor-researchers in their research laboratories. To see some of our students at work in the labs doing summer research (2010) go to TRU Science Scenes.
Our graduates are highly successful and have gone on to numerous science careers in medicine, veterinary medicine, medical genetics, elementary and high school teaching, resource management, high tech industry, biotechnology, optometry, pharmacy, dentistry, wildlife management, respiratory therapy and more! We also have a large number of students who are very successful in graduate schools receiving NSERC scholarships to continue their studies.
