Chemistry (Faculty of Engineering)

Can be taken as: Minor

Chemistry bills itself as the Central Science; central because on one side it is the basis of biochemistry and medical research, while on the other side it merges with the fields of solid state and theoretical physics. It is at the heart of the production of most of the consumer goods and infrastructures around us. Chemistry is also at the fore front of the research seeking to solve some of the most daunting challenges faced by humanity, including global warming, scarcity of fossil resources, energy efficiency, food production and health.

The Minor in Chemistry for Engineering students may be taken in addition to the courses required for the B.Eng. degree. Minor programs normally consist of 18-24 credits, allowing 9-12 credits of overlap with the degree program. The real credit cost to the student is typically 9 to 15 credits, representing one term beyond the typical length of the B.Eng. degree program.
