Finding an Academic Advisor

 

BEFORE formally submitting an admissions application to the Faculty of Graduate Studies, you must first find an academic advisor who might accept you into his/her research group REGARDLESS of the type of degree you're seeking

 

  1. FIND an Advisor -- see our LIST OF PROFESSORS.
     
  2. Please contact/email a professor in your research/study area.
    This is the only opportunity for you to show your academic/research background and skills as well as for a professor to evaluate your background and skills and decide whether he/she wishes to tentatively accept prior to viewing your official documents -- be conciese, but do not leave out important details.

    When emailing a professor please include the following so that he/she can make an informed decision

INCLUDE:

    1. a CV
      1. list publications, posters, talks, courses taught
      2. list certificates, degrees, honours, awards, etc. you've received
      3. describe any cooperative work you've done or are doing either professionally or academically with regards to engineering and especially with regards to your future research
      4. list experiences and/or qualifications in engineering, teaching, leadership, research, etc.
    2. Statement of Intended Research
      1. include a description of your B.Sc. project and/or thesis if pertenant, otherwise describe your research background
      2. include a description of your M.Sc. project and/or thesis
      3. list the fields of interest in which you would like to do research
      4. list experiences and/or qualifications in engineering and/or research, etc. 
    3. University Transcripts
      Please send web or photocopies of university transcripts to the professor with your CV and Statement of Research Intent. The professor will need this information to evaluate your engineering background.

NOTE: Unfortunately, if you do NOT hear back from an Academic Advisors in about 5-weeks the professor may not be interested or able to accepting you at this time. Please try to obtain the Tentative Acceptance of another professor in our Department (http://umanitoba.ca/faculties/engineering/departments/ece/staff/academics.html).

  1. Please do not harass professors with numerous phone calls
  2. The best form of communications is by EMAIL, however do NOT send numerous emails

If a professor is interested and would like you to formally apply to the Graduate Program he/she will contact you and ask you apply to the graduate program or may ask for more information.
