Graduate Program

The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering offers four levels of graduate degree programs in Chemical Engineering and Biological Engineering: Postgraduate Diploma (PGD), Master of Engineering (M.Eng.), Master of Science (M.Sc.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees. The requirements of the Postgraduate Diploma are ten graduate level one-term courses. The M.Eng. requirements are 8 graduate level one-term courses. The M.Sc. requirements normally include at least four graduate level one-term courses beyond the B.Sc. degree, and the completion and an oral defense of a thesis. The Ph.D. program requires successful completion of a comprehensive qualifying examination, at least six graduate level one-term courses and completion and an oral defense of a thesis on original research.

An applicant must complete and submit a pre-qualification for Graduate Study in Chemical and Biological Engineering, the CHE 100 form. Upon the acceptance of the preliminary application, a Graduate Admission Application package will be requested from the prospective student.

All of the above information is available in greater detail from the College of Graduate Studies and Research (CGSR) for both the Chemical Engineering graduate programs and the Biological Engineering graduate programs.

Additional information can be found in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering Graduate Student Handbook.
