4.2.2 Programs in Applied Chemistry Co-operative Education

Students can apply through the Undergraduate Science Centre once they have completed the required courses and achieved the necessary grades. The detailed Co-operative Education program sequence, as well as additional rules and regulations, may be obtained from the Undergraduate Science Centre.

The following courses (or equivalent transfer credits) must be successfully completed or in progress before an application can be made to the Applied Chemistry program. A minimum grade point average of 2.70, using the courses below, is necessary to be eligible to apply. Students interested in Honours Applied Chemistry must additionally meet the Honours qualifications set out in Subsection 3.2 – Honours Programs.

Courses Required for Calculation of Admission GPA:

In addition, to maintain status in Applied Chemistry, a grade point average of 2.70 must be achieved in each review period for continuation in the BSc program. Any student in an Honours program is subject to the provisions for continuation in an Honours program, Subsections 3.2 and 3.4D.

1Science 311 is limited in enrolment. Students may complete it in either the Fall or Winter Term as dictated by the course capacities.

Work Term Assessment

The mandatory work term courses, Co-operative Education 503.01, 503.02, 503.03 and the additional course, Co-operative Education 503.04, are graded on a credit (CR) or fail (F) basis. A positive assessment requires satisfactory performance on each of the following items:

(a) The Co-operative Education Co-ordinator's evaluation of job performance, which is based on an on-site visit where practical.

(b) The employer's evaluation of job performance.

(c) The student's self-assessment of job performance and the overall job experience, which is normally based on participation in a debriefing or integrative session.

(d) A work term report prepared by the student and evaluated by the Faculty.


  • The Faculty may approve registration in Co-operative Education 503.04 in conjunction with an extra (fourth) work term.
  • Students should consult the Chemistry Co-op Co-ordinator and Co-operative Education and Internship Co-ordinator for program planning.
Required Courses - Honours Program

The same as in the Major program except that the 15 units (2.5 full-course equivalents) options are replaced by:

  • 6 units (1.0 full-course equivalent) - Chemistry 502
  • 9 units (1.5 full-course equivalents) - Options

Of the four work terms indicated in the sequence below, three are required.
