Research Degrees (MASc and PhD)

Master of Applied Science | MASc

The MASc is ideal if you aspire to a rewarding career in research – whether in academia or industry – and is a stepping stone to a doctoral (PhD) degree.  Exceptional students can fast-track to the PhD program before completing their MASc.

All MASc students are required to complete a thesis under the supervision of one of our faculty members, as well a number of courses.  Courses may include those commonly of interest to Chemical Engineering students, or from non-engineering departments. The program must be completed on a full-time basis.
