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 Orogram 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 Prococess Systems and Engineering 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.
