About the course
Chemical Engineering is a discipline which advances new knowledge in chemistry and processing technology to practical application. A chemical engineer often works in industries that produce advanced materials, energy, fuels, or pharmaceuticals in the design and operation of chemical processes. Chemical engineering is broader than chemistry, in that it also involves the handling and processing of materials by unit operations such as gas scrubbers, distillation, chemical extraction, filtration and so forth. Chemical engineering students are trained in process safety, process control, management, and economics. Chemical engineers are involved in the manufacture of such commodities as synthetic fibres, plastics, paper, fertilizers, detergents, foods, minerals, alloys and ceramics. Chemical engineers are key to the solution of environmental problems, often developing new non-polluting processes rather than simply treating wastes. Areas of increasing demand include biotechnology, biorefining, mineral processing, and petroleum.Co-operative Education/Internship (Co-op/Internship) Option Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) degree programs are available to interested qualified students enrolled in Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Mechanical or Software Engineering. Normally, a co-op/internship student would accumulate at least sixteen months of practical work experience and graduate a year later than the students enrolled in the regular BEng degree program. In addition to the industrial experience for which the student earns a salary, the option includes prior workshops on interviewing, resume preparation and work performance. Successful completion of each work term requires the submission by the student of a formal work term report to his/her faculty co-op advisor and a satisfactory assessment of the students performance by the employer. Work term experience will meet the criteria defining professional experience required for licensure as a Professional Engineer in Canada.
