The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering (CHBE) offers programs leading to the Master of Engineering (M.Eng.), Master of Science (M.Sc.), Master of Applied Science (M.A.Sc.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees in a number of areas of specialization within chemical and biological engineering.
Faculty and students within CHBE conduct field-defining research that is providing solutions to many of the World’s most pressing challenges – advanced fuel cells batteries and photovoltaics that provide clean energy while reducing use of gasoline and other fossil fuels, green technologies and whole processes to convert renewable natural resources into the vast array of products, chemicals and materials used by society now and in the future. Solutions to the above challenges are inextricably linked to our understanding of complex chemical and biological systems.

The MASc and PhD programs are administered by the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (G&PS) at the Vancouver campus or the College of Graduate Studies at the Okanagan campus.
