|Field of Study:||Chemical Engineering
|Description:||The Chemical Engineering program prepares students for careers in the chemical and process industries and in a variety of related fields. These encompass, among others, the traditional areas of environmental control, plastics and polymers, pulp and paper, instrumentation and process control, petrochemicals, petroleum and natural gas processing, and energy conversion and utilization, as well as the growing fields of biotechnology, food processing, composite materials, corrosion and protective coatings, and manufacture of microelectronic components. The responsibilities assumed by Chemical Engineers include a wide range of activities such as research and development of novel products and processes, the design, development and operation of process plants, and management of technical operations and sales.
The Faculty of Engineering offers a Bachelor of Engineering Co-operative Education program (BEng Co-op) that allows students to alternate career focused work terms with study terms and receive a Co-op degree designation upon graduation. Co-op enables students to apply what they learn in class to real-world work situations and then apply what they learn at work to their classroom studies, thereby enriching their learning. It also helps students to learn more about their career options by test-driving different work environments before they graduate. Graduation from this program requires satisfactory performance in both areas.

|Additional Admission Requirements:||
A student must apply to be admitted into one of the engineering disciplines. Application must be made by April 30 of any year, for conditional acceptance into year two of a specified engineering program. Every engineering discipline has a defined maximum enrollment; therefore places are assigned on a competitive basis. The criterion for this competition is the average grade over all credits completed to date in the core curriculum of the Diploma of Engineering. The procedure is as follows: 1. By April 30, each student must specify ordered preferences for five engineering disciplines. The application is for conditional acceptance into year two of an engineering discipline. 2. Any student who has completed all of the entry requirements for an engineering discipline, with a GPA of 3.30 or better, will be guaranteed a place in that engineering discipline. 3. In a single competition, students with a GPA greater than or equal to 2.00 and less than 3.30 will be assigned conditional places (year two) in engineering disciplines, proceeding in strict order of GPA, subject to discipline capacities. 4. Any student with a GPA of less than 2.00 will not be admitted to a discipline.
