One of the most exciting developments is the new five-year program Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering, which provides the full chemical engineering undergraduate experience, combined with an additional year of study in the life sciences, anatomy, biochemistry and bioengineering electives. The program is intended to provide opportunities for students to broaden their knowledge beyond the traditional chemistry and physics based components of chemical engineering science with further study of the biological sciences. The first class started in September 2002 and we look forward to the growth of this program in parallel with the four year Chemical Engineering program and the five-year Chemical Engineering and Management and Chemical Engineering and Society programs.
The existing programs have been enhanced with the addition of groups of courses linked to the research strengths of the Department. The Process Systems stream provides enrichment electives in the areas of process control, simulation and statistics. The Polymer Materials and Manufacturing stream provides enrichment technical electives in the areas of polymer science, processing and reactor engineering.
Chemical Engineering and Biological Engineering have always been welcoming homes for women. Our classes are typically one third to one half women, and we have three enthusiastic female faculty members. The Women in Engineering Society puts on numerous events including Mentorship BBQs, Spa Nights, Speakers Nights, Girl’s Night Out, and Industry Tours. Please get involved! There are also several scholarships dedicated to female engineers to which we encourage our students to apply. For more information, please visit the Women in Engineering page.
