As the only program of its kind in North America, Engineering Chemistry provides a deeper knowledge of chemistry than chemical engineering. While chemical engineers design and build production processes, engineering chemists are experts in the chemistry behind the process.
In this program, you will study organic and experimental chemistry, reactivity principles, methods of determining structure, knowledge of chemical processes and materials at a molecular level. You will be able to apply your knowledge of which chemical reactions produce which products, from car fuels to medicines, and be able to improve, advance and troubleshoot in the areas of process design and materials design.
Areas of specialization: biosciences chemistry, environmental chemistry, materials chemistry, process chemistry.
