Master of Applied Science in Chemical Engineering

Program overview

The Master of Applied Science program in Chemical Engineering is a thesis-based program with opportunities to specialize in areas including process engineering, process control, materials engineering and bioengineering. We train skilled engineers that find novel ways to solve problems that have significant impact on everyday life, ranging from climate change to food security. Our faculty members are experts in fields such as green chemical processes, polymers and nanomaterials, new battery materials, environmental health diagnostics and the fundamental study of the properties of materials. We place particular emphasis on developing sustainable solutions for the energy sector as well as other sectors. Montreal offers unique opportunities to work in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, and companies supplying the aerospace and transportation sector.

Department research clusters

The chemical industry was founded using carbon taken from fossil fuels. Our researchers are focused on challenging this traditional approach and are looking towards alternative sources such as electricity, renewable energy sources, carbon dioxide and biomass to help create true green processes that are sustainable and minimize our environmental impact.

Finding sustainable energy solutions and resources for ever-increasing energy demands. We undertake innovative research in electrochemical energy storage and conversion technologies, including rechargeable batteries, supercapacitors, fuel cells, hydrogen generation and storage, as well as solar energy conversion.

We are creating advanced bio-sensors, microfluidic devices, innovative drug delivery platforms, smart responsive biomaterials and other engineering solutions for a healthier society. Our research platform combines both theory and experiments, enabling investigation from the atomistic to experimental scale.
