When your application file is complete, the department will review it and the admission decision will be made as soon as possible. Positive decisions for admission generally require that an applicant's academic qualifications and references are satisfactory, that at least one faculty member is willing to serve as supervisor for thesis students (MSc, MEng thesis-based and PhD), and, in the case of PhD and MSc applicants, that adequate financial support is available.
Thesis-students are encouraged to contact professors to find out if they are accepting new students. You can review the list of professors in the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering.
Please download and review the departmental Advice for Finding a Supervisor (pdf).
International students require student authorization with permission to work on campus as a teaching or research assistant. You should submit an application to the nearest Canadian consulate office as soon as you receive an offer of admission.
Please note that admission is competitive and space is limited, so meeting the requirements does not guarantee admission.
Applications are not evaluated until all required documents have been received. We recommend sending all required documents at one time to speed up your evaluation. The application evaluation process depends on the volume of applications received. The MEng course based program takes one to two months to evaluate the applications. In the case of thesis-based students, notification of admission is sent only after a professor has expressed interest in accepting the student. You will be notified by email if you are recommended for admission.
