Queen's has a rich and varied history in engineering and applied physics. Research covers a wide range of topics, with the common theme of using basic science and physics to improve the quality of life and to solve current or future problems facing people both in Canada and worldwide. This research spans areas of photonics, quantum information technology, medical physics, non-destructive evaluation, materials physics, electronic device physics, and plasma physics. Most of our faculty are registered engineers and many have worked in industry and start-up companies.
