Graduate Admissions


The Department welcomes applications for the Masters and Ph.D. degrees from academically qualified students with strong backgrounds in engineering and sciences.

Applicants must hold a credential deemed academically equivalent to a four-year bachelor’s degree from UBC in engineering or a related discipline.  Students who do not have a background in chemical engineering may be required to successfully complete selected essential background and core undergraduate courses in chemical engineering before receiving a degree, as determined by the graduate advisor in consultation with the research supervisor.
