Undergraduate Studies

About Our Undergraduate Programs

Society relies daily on products such as fuel, pharmaceuticals, advanced composites, semiconductors, magnetic and optical storage devices, agricultural products, light-weight materials, coatings, synthetic fibers and personal care products. Chemical Engineers develop new advanced materials and design the processes that convert raw materials into value-added products.

Chemical Engineering is a broadly based engineering discipline, which combines the study of mathematics, chemistry, physics and biology, with engineering science, design, and economics. Students learn how to design safe, efficient, environmentally-friendly, sustainable and economical processes and products. They also acquire direct experience with pilot-scale chemical process equipment and simulators.

Queen's Chemical Engineering offers options in Chemical Process Engineering and in Biochemical Engineering. Depending upon their interest, students can choose elective courses in the following areas: biochemical; biomedical; environmental; process systems engineering; energy; materials.
