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. Students should familiarize themselves with the information provided in the links below. Students are responsible for ensuring they meet the degree requirements, appropriate deadlines, and any other regulations throughout the duration of their program.
