Program Information

School:University of Calgary
Faculty:Schulich School of Engineering
Field of Study:Chemical Engineering
Description:Chemical engineers convert raw materials into valuable products, or separate complex mixtures into their constituent components. Chemical engineering is one of the most broadly-based engineering disciplines, which means the techniques and skills you’ll gain will be directly applicable to a wide range of real world work environments. During the course of your studies, much of your learning will occur in class, during tutorials, and through designing a complete industrial process for a specific product.

This fully accredited program features a common first year, which consists of 10 courses in mathematics, sciences, computing, engineering principles, communications and design. These courses will provide you with a solid foundation for your engineering training and introduce you to a variety of engineering disciplines. You'll apply for admission to a specific engineering program at the end of your first year.

This prgram highlights collaborative team work, access to engineering career advisors and full-time paid work experience through a 12-16 month placement, and study abroad opportunities.
