After Joseph Sebastian began a minor in physics, he soon found himself experiencing science as it’s practised in the real world. While working as a research assistant with professor Michael Kolios, an exciting opportunity arose: a 12-week funded internship with a world renowned physicist in Paris, France. On top of learning techniques in ultrasound imaging, Joseph brushed up his French skills, and “learned more about myself professionally and personally,” he says. “It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience!” Check out Joseph’s story and other opportunities for undergraduate research.
After coming to Ryerson, Monica Bell Vila immersed herself in student life. She held executive positions in the medical physics course union, external link, and picked up 1st prize for her Undergraduate Thesis poster presentation. She even landed an internship with an optics company in the Netherlands, where she created simulations of waveguides. But it wasn’t all study. Monica also found time for fun while running and raising funds with her fellow physics students in CIBC’s Run For the Cure 2018. Check out how you can enrich your student life.
