With its dynamic, diversified world-class training environment, Québec-Océan is a hub for graduate students (Master’s and Doctorate). Students receive technical, logistical, and financial support, and at the same time are involved in state-of-the-art research, often as part of national or international networks. This added value provides them with valuable networking and job opportunities.
Master’s students must do coursework and conduct research to complete the total number of credits necessary for the diploma. Research results are presented in the form of a thesis.
Before beginning the master’s program, the student must choose a research supervisor (and possibly a co-supervisor), the program of study, and the university. The table below summarizes the choices possible among the members of Québec-Océan (associated professors can supervise a student only in co-direction with a full member of Québec-Océan). The student must contact the potential supervisor, find out about the details of the program of study, and apply for admission to the chosen program. The student should also immediately inquire about any financial support that may be available, for example, scholarships from FQRNT or NSERC (competitive), institutional scholarships, support from the research supervisor or from Québec-Ocean (see the menu at left under “Financial support for students”.
