6. Additional Requirements

The Department has established core courses for the following specializations:

All Master of Science students in the Chemical Engineering, Petroleum Engineering and Biomedical Engineering specializations must complete at least two of the core courses of their specialization. All doctoral students in these specializations must have completed at least four of the core courses of their specialization before proceeding to the candidacy examination.

All Master of Science students in the Environmental Engineering specialization and the Energy and Environment specialization must complete at least one of the core courses in their specialization. All doctoral students in these specializations must have completed at least two of the core courses in their specialization before proceeding to the candidacy examination. Requirements for these specializations are listed under the corresponding sections.

All Master of Science students in the Energy and Environmental Systems specialization must complete at least one of the core chemical engineering courses. All doctoral students in this specialization must have completed at least two of the core chemical engineering courses before proceeding to the candidacy examination.

All Master of Science and doctoral students in the Chemical Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, and Biomedical Engineering specialization are required to register and participate in the Research Seminar course (Chemical Engineering 601) for each of the first two terms of their degree program and must also present one research seminar in Chemical Engineering 601.

All Master of Science and doctoral students in the Environmental Engineering and Energy and Environment (Interdisciplinary) specializations are required to register and participate in the Research Seminar course offered by CEERE, Environmental Engineering 601 in two terms of their degree program.

All Master of Science and doctoral students in the Energy and Environmental Systems specialization are required to register and participate in the Research Seminar course (Chemical Engineering 601) for each of the first two terms of their degree program and must also present one research seminar in Chemical Engineering 601. Course requirements for their students registered in the EES specialization are listed under the Energy and Environmental Systems section of the Calendar.

For more details, students must refer to the guidelines for the Research Seminar course. Requirements for other specializations are listed under the corresponding sections.

For Master of Engineering course-based students, at least 60 per cent of the courses must be from the declared area of specialization.

7. Credit for Undergraduate Courses

Not applicable.

8. Time Limit

See "Engineering Programs".

9. Supervisory Assignments

All students are required to have a supervisor before the second annual registration. For students in the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degree programs, a supervisor is normally appointed at the time of admission.

10. Required Examinations

All final thesis oral examinations involve a public seminar/presentation before the oral examination.

PhD candidacy examination will not involve questions on the research proposal but will include questions on background knowledge needed to carry out the proposed research. See "Engineering Programs".

11. Research Proposal Requirements

Doctor of Philosophy
A research proposal must be submitted to and approved by the supervisory committee before the candidacy examination.

12. Special Registration Information

None.

13. Financial Assistance
