Bachelor of Engineering - Chemical Engineering (Co-op) at Ryerson University: Tuition: $38,430.00 CAD/year (Scholarship Available)

Chemical Engineering is a versatile field that synergizes engineering principles and science (chemistry, biology and physics) leading to dynamic, multidisciplinary applications in the vital areas of energy, biotechnology, biochemical, environmental, polymer and food engineering. The Chemical Engineering BEng Co-operative degree program is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.


The Department offers a mandatory co-operative program which provides the graduating chemical engineering student with up to 20 months of work experience that enhances their organization and technical abilities as well as their oral and written communication skills. Students must successfully complete four work terms.

The first two years of the program focus on the basic sciences and include introductory courses in chemical engineering principles. The third and fourth years of the academic program give students the opportunity to study chemical engineering in depth, and to apply this knowledge to process design applications. Computer applications in chemical engineering are emphasized in the curriculum. Fourth year allows students to choose specialized elective groups to broaden their knowledge in the chemical and related engineering fields. These courses include Food Processing, Water and Wastewater Treatment, Biochemical Engineering, Air Pollution and Control, Particulate Engineering, Process and Engineering Optimization, Transport Phenomena and Plastics Technology.

Practical skills development and communication skills are emphasized throughout the program. There are laboratory courses in all the aspects of science and engineering. The co-op portion of the program gives students an opportunity to obtain practical experience in their field and a better understanding of their profession. This work experience puts the co-op graduate in an advantageous position to obtain permanent employment compared to graduates from traditional programs.
