Studying at the graduate level is a full-time commitment. We require every student pursuing research-based degrees (Masters - thesis option and PhD) to be funded. Students are expected to apply for scholarships and fellowships for which they are eligible, and to maintain dialogue with their research supervisor about funding requirements and funding sources. Information on important funding opportunities from outside the Department of Chemical Engineering can be found here and on the right side.
Chemical Engineering has been taught at McGill since 1908. The first doctorate was awarded in 1935, and our program has subsequently grown to accommodate approximately 90 full-time PhD and MEng candidates, and postdoctoral researchers. Our alumni occupy many key positions in industrial, academic and governmental organizations in Canada and throughout the world.
