Application process

We accept applications once per year for a fall semester program start. The application process opens in September and is due in early January for Fall enrollment. Admission decisions will be available by the end of February.

Candidates are required to provide evidence of the following to be considered for the program.

  • Bachelor of Science or equivalent degree in Chemical Engineering or related field
  • Transcript from every post-secondary school ever attended
  • Minimum grade-point average (GPA) of 3.0 (B) on a 4.0 scale.
  • Minimum TOEFL score of at least 90 for the Internet-based test (IBT) or 570 for the paper-based format (PBT), if appropriate

Candidates who possess other degrees such as a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry will be required to demonstrate how their work experience or other coursework taken since graduation provides a sufficiently strong foundation to undergo the Master's program.
