Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry: Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry MASc

Master of Applied Science​

Program Description

The MASc program is ideal for students who aspire to a rewarding career in research, whether in academia or industry. It is a stepping stone to a doctoral (PhD) degree.

 

Minimum Admission Requirements

  • Applicants are admitted under the General Regulations of the School of Graduate Studies. Applicants must also satisfy the Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry's additional admission requirements stated below.

  • A four-year degree (or equivalent) in engineering or the physical/chemical/biological sciences with a B+ average (or equivalent) in each of the last two years of full-time study.

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. 

    • Only one 500-level course may be taken for credit towards the degree program.
