Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry

Program Overview

Research-Based Programs

The research-intensive Master of Applied Science (MASc) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree programs will challenge and reward students looking for the best education available.

A wide variety of courses are offered in both fundamental and applied areas of chemical engineering. There are excellent computational and experimental facilities where students generally have both office and lab space to call their own. Research supervisors cover all research costs. Please see the research clusters​ section of the Chemical Engineering website for further details on available research areas.

Professional Master’s Program

The Master of Engineering (MEng) program provides students with advanced professional training in chemical engineering. In as little as one year of study, students can obtain a degree respected by employers that differentiates them in a crowded marketplace.

Students have the opportunity to complete a well-rounded program covering a variety of topics or to further their expertise in areas such as advanced water technology, energy, environmental engineering, health and safety management, as well as core chemical engineering concepts.
