The Master of Applied Science (MASc) program focuses on original engineering research with a faculty member. 

To be accepted into the program, you must have a supervisor; however, we recommend that you apply and upload all of your supporting materials before you contact a faculty member to request supervision.

Finding a supervisor

To receive an offer of admission to the MASc program, you must have a faculty member from the Department of Chemical Engineering who is willing to serve as your supervisor. 

After you have submitted your application package, contact the academic supervisors who are conducting research in your area of specialization to request supervision. You are responsible for bringing your performance and record to the attention of the faculty members under whom you would like to work.
