Practicing engineers looking to boost their skills should consider the Chemical and Petroleum Engineering (M.Eng. Thesis) degree. Much like the course-based masters, the program aims to allow practicing engineers to expand their knowledge of chemical/petroleum engineering fundamentals. But in order to accommodate the time that will be spent producing a thesis, the number of courses is reduced. As part of the program, thesis topics are related to an industrial problem that the student wishes to study in greater detail.
Admission to this program is limited. Please contact the department before applying.
