Engineering Chemistry

Introduction

The only program of its kind in North America, Engineering Chemistry provides a core of fundamental chemistry and applied chemistry that is comparable to that obtained with a Chemistry degree, along with the skills and tools needed by a professional engineer.

 

 

Queen's Engineering Chemistry has specializations in Biosciences, Environmental, Materials and Process Chemistry. Students study organic and experimental chemistry, reactivity, structural determination methods, and develop knowledge of chemical processes and materials at a molecular level. In addition to the engineering accreditation, this is an accredited Honours Chemistry program with the Canadian Society for Chemistry (CSC).

Careers: Graduates are highly sought after in the pharmaceutical, agricultural, food-product, biomedicine and environmental protection sectors, with a number of students going on to graduate studies.
