Undergraduate Studies

Engineering Chemistry

Engineering Chemistry is one of the longest standing such programs at the interface of applied chemistry and chemical engineering. It is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board as an engineering discipline and the Canadian Society for Chemistry as a chemistry program. Students are therefore trained as both scientists and engineers.

 

Engineering Chemistry graduates are experts in the chemistry behind industrial processes and combine a strong background in both chemistry and chemical engineering to treat problems of industrial interest. The curriculum integrates a core of chemistry with a body of engineering in a manner that allows chemical knowledge to be put into practice. In this program, you will study applied organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, reactivity principles, methods of determining structure, and you will acquire knowledge of materials at a molecular level. You will be able to apply this core chemical knowledge to design and improve processes and materials, ranging from fuel cells to pharmaceuticals. Students can choose electives and fourth year thesis project in the biosciences, environmental, material sciences, process chemistry, depending upon their interests.
