Program Information

School:Laurentian University/Universite Laurentienne
Faculty:Faculty of Science, Engineering, and Architecture
Field of Study:Chemical Engineering
Description:Chemical engineers apply economics, chemistry, biology, physics, and mathematics to the design and operation of processes and systems. Laurentian graduates can actively applying their knowledge to a very wide range of situations, including: process plant design and operation, synthesis of alternative fuels, energy conservation and conversion; optimization and control, and environmental remediation and conservation. They are also at the front of exciting fundamental studies in areas such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, electrochemical technology, green chemistry and sustainable development.

Co-operative education is a plan of work-integrated learning where, starting in the second year, students put their academic knowledge into action through five (5) paid, discipline-related, 4-month work terms alternating with six study terms. On-the-job experiences and insights are then brought back to the classroom for further analysis and reflection.
