SCI-CAREERS

Where do you see yourself in the future as a McMaster Science graduate? 

‚Äč

The purpose of the MSS Sci-Careers project is to inspire current undergraduate Science students into discovering and pursuing their true passions through the shared experiences of preceding MacSci alumni. These individuals each bring a new story regarding their undergraduate careers and the pathways they took to be where they stand presently. They have all acquired thoroughly distinct and contrasting areas of studies even though they share the same starting point. Presenting their unique pursuits will encourage current MacSci students to take on an open mindset, allowing students to chase after boundless opportunities with the intent of embracing an occupation that is truly characteristic of each individual.

#5: Edwin Wong; Studying for a Masters in Neuroscience 

Throughout my undergrad, I was enrolled in the biopsych program. Here at Mac, I was extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to TA for multiple courses; those being Calc 1LS3, Math 1M03, along with some intropsych courses...

#6: Michael Birch; Works in Software Development

I was enrolled in the Honours math and physics program at Mac during undergrad. I knew back in high school that physics was my area of study. I really love that it is very straightforward, black and white; in the sense that there was an exact right...
