The Department is one of the most distinguished and research-intensive of Canadian chemical engineering departments. In 1999, the Canadian Society for Chemical engineering selected 20 chemical engineers to receive national awards for making the greatest contributions to the profession in Canada in the 20th century. Four of the twenty award winners were faculty members of this department. Our graduate alumni have careers around the globe - from academia to industry to government labs.
Chemical Engineering and Biological Engineering have always been welcoming homes for women. Female graduate students in engineering and science are encouraged to participate inWomen in Science and Engineering, WiSE, which organises many events, including a mentorship program and an annual conference.
