The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering (CHBE) provides exciting opportunities to learn about the transformation of raw materials into valuable products by chemical, biochemical, physical or electrochemical processes. Applications of chemical engineering projects include the design and operation of food processing, petroleum, pharmaceutical, metals refining and chemical plants. Today’s engineers focus on the environment and design and operate solid or liquid waste treatment plants, biomass conversion, and clean energy. Chemical & biological engineers work in all industrial sectors including energy, mining and forestry in both the public and private sectors.

Our Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.Sc.) undergraduate programs combine lectures, hands-on lab activities, problem sessions, research, industry visits and design experiences to provide students the balance of practical and analytical skills needed to become successful, competent engineers.

Our programs are fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers, which allows students to register as an Engineer-in-Training upon graduation.

Undergraduate Handbook

The Undergraduate Handbook is provided as a:

  • Companion reference for important information about the departments’ two undergraduate degree programs (chemical engineering & chemical and biological engineering)
  • Repository of information for a particular academic year
  • Starting point to engage in conversations with our faculty and staff about planning your academic and professional future
