The Engineering Chemistry program is offered by the Department of Chemical Engineering with the close cooperation of the Department of Chemistry. The academic program is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board as an engineering discipline and the Canadian Society for Chemistry as a chemistry program. The curriculum integrates a core of chemistry with a body of engineering in a manner that allows chemical knowledge to be put into practice. Beginning with a concentration on basic engineering principles, science, and mathematics, students can gain specialization in areas such as process chemistry, materials science, biosciences and pharmaceuticals, through selection of electives and thesis project. They also work on group design projects throughout the design spine. In their fourth year students work on a year-long research thesis project, under the supervision of academic staff. All students have access to a computing facility, equipped with software programs and simulators.
Chemical Engineering and Engineering Chemistry students may be required to pay ancillary fees for course related learning materials, safety equipment and field trips.
