Chemical Engineering


The Chemical Engineering Department is primarily located in Dupuis Hall, with additional space in the Bio-Sciences Complex, the Human Mobility Research Centre (HMRC) located in the Kingston General Hospital, and the Queen's-RMC Fuel Cell Research Centre (FCRC) located at Innovation Park. A total of 2100 m2 in Dupuis Hall and the Biosciences Complex is assigned to research and research support activities, faculty and graduate student offices. Additional space totalling 890 m2 (of which 15-20% is laboratory space) is housed in the FCRC and roughly 600 m2 is occupied by department researchers at the HMRC.


The Queen's-RMC Fuel Cell Research Centre (FCRC) is Canada's leading university-based research and development organization in partnership with Industry, dedicated to advancing the knowledge base for addressing the key technology challenges to the commercialisation of fuel cell applications.

  The Advanced Polymeric Materials Characterization facility, located on the 4th floor of Dupuis Hall, was established in 2002 with financial support from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation and the Ontario Innovation Trust. The instrumentation was purchased to help provide the fundamental insight into the molecular and bulk physical properties of polymers needed to design novel materials and optimize their properties.
HMRC The Human Mobility Research Centre (formerly the Clinical Mechanics Group) is a multidisciplinary group of clinician-scientists, basic scientists, and engineers interested in the mechanisms of musculoskeletal diseases and disorders (e.g., the cause, the prevention and the treatment of bone and joint disorders caused by arthritis, osteoporosis, and injury).
Undergrad Cluster Undergraduate Computing Facility was established to provide Chemical Engineering/Engineering Chemistry students access to the high-end software that is specialized for their programs.
