Eligibility As Canada's largest information and communications technology research consortium, we offer a unique graduate studies research experience that results in our graduates being actively recruited by industry. This is because our collaborative research program combines the best of academia and industry - students work on research challenges that are defined by our industry partners and formulated into a meaningful program by professors from our affiliated universities. As a result, students obtain a broad research perspective and skills, knowledge, and contacts instrumental for career success. TRLabs is an accredited extension of five western Canadian universities: The University of Alberta, The University of Calgary, The University of Manitoba, The University of Regina and The University of Saskatchewan. Students registered in graduate programs in electrical and computer engineering/science at any of these universities can conduct the research portion of their degree requirements at TRLabs. TRLabs offers scholarships for graduate students from affiliate universities pursuing research at TRLabs. For NSERC and other award holders, we offer supplementary graduate fellowships. M.Sc. students typically receive funding for two years and Ph.D. students for four. Students can also take advantage of paid conferences and travel, which provides the opportunity to develop professional presentation skills and keep abreast of latest research in their area of interest. Student scholarships doubled in value September 1, 2007 to enable TRLabs and its member universities to effectively attract top graduate students. Scholarship values are back-end loaded to Years 2+ of a graduate program to recognize student transition from a class-intensive to a project-intensive program, and the corresponding ability to contribute more strongly to TRLabs' research and development (R&D) work with industry partners. The Entrance Process a) A prospective student must be accepted into the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering/Science at one of our affiliated universities. b) Prospective students must be supervised by a TRLabs professor from one of our affiliated universities/colleges. c) Professors associated with TRLabs recommend students for TRLabs privileges. d) Prospective students should have a minimum GPA of 7.5 out of 9 or equivalent.
