Future Student Information

Overview

This program combines Chemical Engineering with a broader university experience. Students graduating from this five-year program, will receive a traditional education in the field of Chemical Engineering, as well as learning about the complex interactions between technology and society. The program is designed to promote the ability of students to interact effectively with others and take a multi-dimensional approach to problem solving. In addition, a series of focused elective courses outside the Faculty of Engineering are taken.
