Welcome to Chemical Engineering at the University of Waterloo

Part of Canada's largest engineering school, the department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Waterloo is home to more than 1200 students, faculty and staff, with thousands of alumni worldwide.

At Waterloo, we have one of Canada’s largest undergraduate programs in chemical engineering, and the impact on industry shows. An estimated 10% of working chemical engineers graduated here!

Our collaborative and interdisciplinary research benefits from many faculty cross-appointments in Science and Engineering. And, with the recent opening of the department’s new home, Engineering 6, students and faculty have access to a truly state-of-the-art facility, complete with an in-house water treatment plant and 115,000 square feet of new research labs and teaching space.
