School: McGill University
Faculty: Faculty of Engineering
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Chemical Engineering
Description: The discipline of chemical engineering is distinctive in being based equally on physics, mathematics and chemistry. Application of these three fundamental sciences is basic to a quantitative understanding of the process industries. Those with an interest in the fourth major science, biology, will find several courses in the Chemical Engineering curriculum which integrate aspects of the biological sciences relevant to process industries such as food processing, fermentation and water pollution control. Courses on the technical operations and economics of the process industries are added to this foundation. The core curriculum concludes with process design courses taught by practising design engineers. Problem solving, experimenting, planning and communication skills are emphasized in courses throughout the core curriculum.
