Welcome to the Engineering Physics Ambassador page!
Our recently established Ambassador program is a fantastic opportunity to enhance the Engineering Physics student experience.
Our Ambassadors represent our Department and are knowledgeable about our undergraduate programs, the happenings within the department, and help give prospective students a personal and informative connection with The Department of Engineering Physics and the McMaster community at large.
They act as the go-to person for current and prospective students’ questions and concerns, and serve as representatives at all relevant departmental, faculty, and university-wide events.
Our student Ambassadors address the departmental need for community and open communication about life and education in Engineering Physics. In brief, they are the face and voice of the department.
The Ambassadors serve as liaisons to students and engineering/community organizations, and assist in the development and implementation of department-specific projects. Along with the Engineering Physics Society, the Ambassadors are an invaluable link to the Engineering Physics student body, as well as the larger Engineering faculty. By establishing meaningful relationships with prospective and current students, faculty, and staff, student Ambassadors create a sense of belonging and connectedness in the Department of Engineering Physics.
As always, our Ambassadors will represent Engineering Physics at various events. You can come to any of our events (including May @ Mac, Engineering 1 Information Session, Engineering Physics Information Night, and many more!) and ask our Ambassadors any questions you may have about our program (find them in bright yellow t-shirts!)
Our Ambassadors may also visit High Schools and give an Engineering Physics lecture/demo. The Ambassadors are also starting a brand new Student for a Day Program. This will be for Grade 11-12 students and will involve getting to know exactly what the life of an Engineering Physics student is like, including attending classes, labs, tutorials, and perhaps more! Apply through our webform! For our current students, Ambassadors will facilitate a peer-to-peer mentoring program offered to level 2 Engineering Physics students.
If you have any questions for an Eng Phys Ambassador, be sure to meet our Ambassadors and get in contact with them!
The Engineering Physics Ambassadors are charismatic, confident, and professional leaders who are enthusiastic about Engineering Physics and all it has to offer.

Experience a day-in-the-life of a McMaster Engineering Physics student! Come join us for a personalized experience. What do you want to know about our program? Who do you want to meet? What would you like to see? This is an opportunity for you to become better acquainted with your future.
You will have an opportunity to:
- Tour our state-of-the-art facilities
- Get expert advice from real Engineering Physics students.
- You may even be able to attend a class and meet with a faculty member!
After submitting your request, we’ll match you up with an Ambassador who will be your Student For A Day guide. Your Ambassador will create a custom itinerary just for you.
This program is open both to high school students (Grade 11 and 12) and Level 1 Engineering Students!
- It is our goal to accommodate all requests that we get for this program. However, we do ask that you provide 2 weeks’ notice of your intended visit so that we may plan accordingly.
- Visits may go beyond classes to include other shared interests, such as clubs and student teams.
- You’ll be provided with a customized itinerary before your visit, outlining activities and locations, and contact information (in case of emergencies).
- In general, activities will take place on McMaster’s main campus during regular business hours (8:30am to 4:30pm, Monday to Friday) from September to the end of November and from mid-January to the end of March. May through August has limited availability.
- Beyond the visit, parents/guardians are welcome to continued conversations with our Ambassador team throughout the post-secondary application process.
Student for a Day opportunities are currently reserved for High School Students (Grade 11 & 12) as well as Level 1 Engineering students.
You may also wish to arrange separate tours of our campus. Visit this website for more information.
The comfort, safety, and well-being of all participants are important for the success of individual visits and the program. The Student For A Day program does realize that life happens and things can change. Please be considerate of the time and effort put in by the Ambassadors to personalize your day and advise as soon as possible if you cannot make your scheduled appointment or need to reschedule.
Matches can be cancelled by emailing the Ambassadors at email@example.com
The ambassadors are experienced, undergraduate student leaders, who have taken an interest in recruiting future students to Engineering Physics. They are the same volunteers who support on- and off-campus Engineering Physics recruiting initiatives, such as open houses and the Ontario Universities Fair. You can learn more about them under “Meet Our Ambassadors.”
