Senior Research Projects (Students in Years 4/5)
The department has a series of directed research project courses PC491/PC492 and CP493/CP494.
Students doing a directed research project, need to find a supervisor and research topic. Typically, the projects are done individually.
A list of potential projects follows but you can approach any faculty member in the department.

People at Laurier
Marek was named Laurier’s University Research Professor for 2005–2006. He and his research group recently created the world’s first simulator of quantum well-based semiconductor lasers. Based on microscopic principles, this simulator is also able to simulate semiconductor nanostructures including quantum dots. Using this simulator to accurately model new optical communication devices shortens the design time for new products. Marek is a key faculty member in Laurier's unique undergraduate Photonics program.
