Chemical Engineering MASc

* Subject to MEES approval

Admission Requirements

To be considered for admission to Master-level studies, applicants must hold a bachelor's/baccalaureate degree (or equivalent) in engineering or the sciences with high standing (e.g., with honours, or the Concordia equivalent of a GPA of at least 3.00 on a scale of 4.30).

The Department Graduate Studies Committee will determine the acceptability of an applicant for admission to the program and may require the applicant to do specific remedial coursework, including the bridge course CHME 401 Principles of Chemical Engineering, and/or other course(s) to meet the program requirements.

Credible academic references and a statement of purpose are required.

Requirements for the Degree

Students must complete 45 credits as shown below:

  1. Courses. 16 credits chosen from the Engineering Courses section, approved by the student's supervisor and either the Graduate Program Director or the Chair of the Department. According to the University regulations on transfer of credits, students who have completed a graduate Certificate or Diploma may have courses transferred into a MASc. Please refer to the Transfer Credits section of the Graduate Calendar for further information.

  2. Thesis. 29 credits.



At least 8 credits (two courses) from the following list:

  • CHME 6011 - Advanced Transport Phenomena
  • CHME 6021 - Advanced Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics
  • CHME 6031 - Chemical Kinetics and Reaction Engineering
  • CHME 6041 - Chemical Engineering Process Dynamics and Control
  • CHME 6051 - Chemical Process Engineering and Design
  • CHME 6071 - Materials Science and Engineering
  • CHME 6121 - Nanomaterials Science and Engineering
  • ENCS 6021 - Engineering Analysis

Up to 8 credits (two courses) from lists 1, 2, or 3 (Core and Electives: 16 credits)

Students may take an elective course outside lists 1, 2, or 3 with permission of the Graduate Program Director.

Students who take a three-credit course towards their course requirement of 16 credits must take the one-credit course CHME 6001 CHME 6001 - Project in Chemical and Materials Engineering to obtain the missing credit.
