The Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry offers graduate research in pure science, engineering fundamentals, and engineering applications.
The Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry offers graduate research in pure science, engineering fundamentals, and engineering applications. Graduate programs lead to the degrees of Master of Applied Science (MASc), Master of Engineering (MEng), and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). The MEng program differs from the MASc and PhD programs in that it is oriented to learning through prescribed courses rather than through research.
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
-Chemical and Materials Process Engineering
-Environmental Science and Engineering
-Pulp and Paper
-Surface and Interface Engineering
