Founded in 1887, and relocated to Hamilton from Toronto in 1930, McMaster is among Canada’s most research-intensive universities. Across its six faculties – business, engineering, health sciences, humanities, science and social sciences – reside more than 80 research centres and institutes.  McMaster researchers participate in more than 70 international exchange agreements around the globe and, it is the only site in North America to host a University Nations University, the Institute for Water, Environment and Health.

McMaster’s research strength is one of the University’s most prized assets. Home to some of the best minds and laboratories in the country, with research output rivalling universities more than twice its size, McMaster has a well-deserved reputation as a crucible of discovery and innovation. It is consistently rated among the top one hundred institutions in the world for the quality and breadth of its research enterprise, for the discoveries and scholarly contributions of its faculty, for the excellence of its research programs, and for the amount of funding it receives from the federal and provincial governments and Tri-Council granting agencies in support of this research powerhouse.

McMaster’s core research community is comprised of individuals from around the globe: some 1,300 full time faculty (including clinicians from the Faculty of Health Sciences), approximately 4,000 graduate students, about 300 post-doctoral fellows and hundreds of skilled technicians and research associates.  In addition, many of its 21,000 plus undergraduate students work with researchers on leading-edge projects providing the opportunity for an early “hands on” research experience.
