Undergraduate Program in Chemical Engineering
The undergraduate program in Chemical Engineering at Dalhousie University is designed to provide the student with a broad background in the underlying sciences of Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. This is then combined with a detailed knowledge of engineering principles and practice, along with a good appreciation of social, environmental and economic factors. Thorough understanding of the principles is accomplished through lecture, tutorial and laboratory activities, and extensive use is made of the departmental Computing Facilities.
Laboratory involvement is considered an important component of the student's education. Emphasis in the laboratory is placed on Teamwork and on the development of problem-solving skills. The Department stresses the preparation of students for independent work and the development of interpersonal skills necessary for professional engineers.
Elective courses provide the student with the opportunity to obtain additional training in one of the following areas of emphasis:

Co-operative education integrates on-campus study with particular work experience resulting in a degree solidly grounded in both theory and practice. Employers are educators who encourage the student's professional and personal growth in the realistic setting of the workplace. Often employers participate in the Co-Op program as a means of early training and evaluation potential permanent employees. Co-Op education is a challenging and rewarding way of earning a degree and at the same time provides the necessary work experience to gain and edge in the career market after graduation.
Dalhousie University endeavours, but makes no commitment, to find a job for every student. A student is at liberty to arrange his or her own job, which must be approved by the Department in order to qualify as part of the Co-Op program.
