Overview

The Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry offers graduate research in pure science, engineering fundamentals, and engineering applications. The department attracts a dynamic professorial staff with outstanding international reputations. Many graduate students work closely with industrial partners during their studies. Research is funded by the government and industry, often by means of a consortium of companies. The experience of dealing with real-world problems prepares graduates for successful professional careers.

Research and teaching are the foundations of the department. Research is clustered into eight major categories:

  • Biomolecular and Biomedical Engineering
  • Bioprocess Engineering
  • Chemical and Materials Process Engineering
  • Engineering Informatics
  • Environmental Science and Engineering
  • Pulp and Paper
  • Surface and Interface Engineering

Program Requirements

  • Each student should discuss possible research projects with several members of the department before selecting a research area and a supervisor. Students must complete a thesis on a research topic.

  • Coursework. Students must complete at least three graduate half courses (1.5 full-course equivalents [FCEs]) as follows:

    • One course must normally be selected from Category A: fundamental courses (see courses below).

    • At least one course must be selected in an area outside the student's area of research.

Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry: Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry MASc, MEng, PhD Courses

An updated course list and schedule is available on the departmental website at the beginning of each session listing the time and room location for each course. Not all courses are given every year.

All students wishing to undertake research and teaching in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry must successfully complete an intensive occupational health and safety training workshop, CHE 2222H Safety Workshop, which normally takes place during the week immediately preceding the commencement of graduate courses in the fall. In each subsequent year of registration, students must take the WHMIS refresher workshop. Students registered in a graduate degree program involving research are required to participate in the non-credit seminar course JDE 1000H Ethics in Research during their first or second session of registration.
