Information for Prospective Graduate Students

Thanks for your interest in my research and in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science. There are a number of faculty at the University of Waterloo with similar interests, so even if I am not able to accept you, you may have an opportunity to study here with someone else, so please do not hesitate to apply online.

I am very sorry, but due to the number of requests I get from students to personally evaluate their background and suitability for graduate studies at Waterloo, I am unable to handle these types of requests. The only way to find out if you will be accepted is to apply. Note that I am not on the admissions committee.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are interested in Operating Systems research, please make sure to select "Systems and Networking" as one of your subplans.

Good luck with your application,
Martin Karsten
