At McMaster, we are devoted to the cultivation of human potential. We are committed to taking a collaborative approach to improving people's lives, contributing to global knowledge, and advancing the health and well-being of the world. One of the ways we fulfill this commitment is by pioneering groundbreaking research in fields ranging from health care to business, arts, and culture to advanced manufacturing. Our discoveries include:

  • The use of radiation science to study artifacts from ancient civilizations.
  • The latest integration of music and motion-capture technology to create a dance app for Parkinson's treatment.
  • The application of ethics research addresses challenges and policy gaps in global economics, health, and development.

Founded in 1887, McMaster University is one of only five Canadian universities (and one of only two in Ontario) consistently ranked among the top 100 in the world by the major global ranking systems. A medical-doctoral, research-intensive university, McMaster is dedicated to teaching, learning, and service. In the 1960s, we pioneered the problem-based approach to learning that came to be known worldwide as "the McMaster model".

Home to more than 70 research centers and institutes, McMaster comprises six faculties: The DeGroote School of Business, and the Faculties of Engineering, Health Sciences, Humanities, Science, and Social Sciences. With a total full-time student population of more than 31,000, McMaster welcomes students from 107 countries and Canada. The percentage of undergraduates registering with an admission average of 90 percent and above has risen from 13.5 percent in 2000 to 35.84 percent in 2016.

McMaster's main campus, located in the Westdale neighborhood of Hamilton, Ontario, comprises 300 acres of beautiful property at the western end of Lake Ontario, between Toronto and Niagara Falls. Our 30-acre central core is designated for pedestrians and bicyclists. Nearby attractions include Cootes Paradise, the Bruce Trail, the Waterfront Trail, the Royal Botanical Gardens, and the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. McMaster University also has four regional campuses: downtown Hamilton, Burlington, Kitchener-Waterloo, and Niagara.
