The Department of chemical and biological engineering located in the Faculty of Engineering offers graduate programs leading to the degrees of Master of Applied Science (MASc), Master of Engineering (MEng) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Chemical Engineering.
The main objective of the master’s programs is to refine the skills and research expertise of the students by expanding their specialized knowledge of chemical engineering primarily achieved through course work, research seminars, and technical training.
The PhD program prepares candidates for a career in teaching, research and/or development. Graduates are expected to have acquired autonomy in conducting research, preparing scholarly publications, and promoting chemical engineering.
Members of the Department are involved in four main research fields: materials development; process engineering; clean technologies and renewable energy; and, biomedical engineering. Further information is posted on the departmental website.
Most of the courses in these programs are offered in English. Research activities can be conducted either in English, French or both, depending on the language used by the professor and the members of his or her research group.
In accordance with the University of Ottawa regulation, students have a right to produce their work, their thesis, and to answer examination questions in French or in English.
The programs operate within the general framework of the general regulations of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (FGPS) of the University of Ottawa, which are posted on the FGPS website.
