Subject scope

The Department of Chemical Engineering offers degrees at the Bachelors (BEng), Masters (MEng), and Ph.D. levels.

The scope of chemical engineering collection development at Schulich Library includes all areas taught and researched at McGill. The aim is to support a research level collection in the fundamental principles of chemical engineering, and in the following research areas:

Collection development

General collection guidelines


English is preferred. Works published in a language other than English will be acquired if the author or the content is of sufficient importance.

Chronological Coverage

Current monographic titles are purchased. The collection provides comprehensive coverage of older materials thanks to the age of the collection and the department at McGill.

Geographical Coverage

No restriction.

McGill Resources

The Life Sciences Library contains materials dealing with environmental health and biotechnology, and biomedical engineering.

Macdonald Campus Library contains materials dealing with bioresource engineering/environmental engineering, biotechnology, food processing & manufacture, and fermentation.
