Welcome to the
WESTERN INSTITUTE FOR
WINS is a
Faculty of Science initiative, and will have active participants from the
Departments of Physics & Astronomy,
Applied Mathematics, and
Computer Science. It is anticipated
that the membership will be expanded at a later time to include individuals from
the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry.
Materials and Biomaterials has been designated one of the core theme area in the
Academic Plan of the Faculty of Science. The establishment of WINS can
therefore be viewed as a natural evolution of the Academic Plan in that the
mandate of WINS is to integrate and expand UWO Science's already distinguished
efforts in the interdisciplinary fields of materials at the nanoscale.
WINS has three main objectives:
1.) To provide a cohesive presence and
collective vision for the departments, laboratories and facilities that
presently work on nanomaterials.
2.) To develop a graduate program in Materials
and Biomaterials sciences. This will be strongly integrated with the
undergraduate programs in the same area recently introduced by the Faculty of
3.) To serve as an organization where UWO
researchers in materials science will be able to meet, interact and collaborate
effectively, as as a communication link to the outside world.
