The Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering offers Master of Science degrees in:

MSc in Chemical Engineering
MSc in Materials Engineering
MSc in Process Control 

The requirements for the MSc degree consist of:

  • successful completion of course work, 
  • participation in seminars, 
  • completion of the ethics course ENGG 600, and 
  • presentation of a thesis which embodies the results of independent research.

The MSc minimum course requirement is four courses plus the ethics course. At least two courses must be 600 or higher level courses in the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering. The balance of the courses shall be at the 500 or higher level in the Faculty of Engineering, or at the 400 or higher level in a Science Department. Science courses at the 400 level must be approved by the supervisor and Associate Chair (Graduate).
