The field of Chemical Engineering caters to a large number of industrial sectors from petroleum, pulp and paper, bio-refining, cement, pharmaceutical, waste treatment, etc. The PhD program in Chemical Engineering satisfies the demands of these sectors because of the well-rounded study program that has been developed. Our PhD program in Chemical Engineering is directed to graduates from the existing Master’s in Environmental Engineering program at Lakehead University and outstanding graduates of chemical engineering or other related programs nationally and internationally.
The objective of the program is to provide students with a strong basis for careers in chemical engineering, both in academia and in industry. This will be achieved through a combination of course work and independent research study in which the students will be encouraged to think independently, collaborate with other researchers and provide solutions to practical problems and developments in industry in an innovative manner.
Applicants for admission must be graduates of a recognized university and show evidence of scholarly achievement. Except where otherwise stated in the Admission Requirements of a particular program, students must have a Masters degree or its equivalent with an academic average as specified by the academic unit. An applicant holding a degree other than one in the discipline area to which admission is sought will be considered on the basis of Master's courses taken and academic standing. A Qualifying Year may be required at the Masters level to meet the admission standards. Courses taken as part of a Qualifying Year cannot be used as credit towards a doctoral degree.
Meeting the minimum requirements does not necessarily guarantee admission. No candidate will be admitted unless the academic unit recommends admission. All applicants will be advised in writing by the Office of Graduate Studies of their admission status.
In addition to the general admission requirements for PhD programs, applicants must also submit:
