Graduate Studies

Chemical Engineering has been taught at McGill since 1908. The first doctorate was awarded in 1935, and our program has subsequently grown to accommodate approximately 90 full-time PhD and MEng candidates, and postdoctoral researchers. Our alumni occupy many key positions in industrial, academic and governmental organizations in Canada and throughout the world. The Department offers advanced graduate courses that emphasize important core fundamentals, such as heat & mass transfer, fluid mechanics, computational methods, and thermodynamics, as well as more specialized courses in the bioengineering, environmental and materials sciences.
