Faculty of Science



Scientific teaching and research have a long and rich history at McGill University. With this timeline, we invite you on a journey to meet the people who have contributed to make the Faculty of Science the world-renowned institution that it is today. Read about where scientific education began at McGill, learn about the events that have shaped our faculty to its current heights today, and discover some of the exceptional archival documents that bear witness to the lives of past generations of proud McGillian scientists!
