The department has well equipped research and teaching laboratories, and allows either experimental or theoretical research projects. Chemical Engineering students at University of Saskatchewan may be involved in a specialized research-oriented activity, collaboration with industry, or research centres in Canada.


Program Details

This research based program in Chemical Engineering at University of Saskatchewan will allow you to conduct original research with access to state of the art facilities, research centres, and labs. Our faculty have a focus on the following research areas:

Biochemical Engineering

Research in the area of biotechnology involves the studies of biodegradation, biofilms, bioreactor design, drying of spores, gasohol purification, VOC bioremediation, recombinant fermentation, and metabolic engineering and functional genomics.


Predictive modelling and experimental studies are underway relating to corrosion in a wide range of industrial systems.

Fluid Mechanics

Multiphase pipeline flow, rheology and fluidization are at the centre of both experimental and theoretical studies of fluid mechanics

Reaction Engineering

In the area of chemical reaction engineering, conversion of biomass and other waste materials to synthesis gas and value-added bioproducts, biodiesel production and utilization, alkylation and isomerization to value-added bio-products, hydrotreating of heavy gas oil, conversion of mercaptans and hydrogen sulphide on carbon catalysts, production and utilization of activated carbon and production and applications of carbon nano-tubes, the development of renewable source of energy and chemicals from biomass-derived oils under catalytic reaction conditions was studied. The role of catalysts in the abatement of gaseous pollutants from coal-fired power plants has also been examined.


The phase equilibria of industrially important systems have been studied with a view to improving existing process design.

Academic requirements

GPA admission requirements GPA Your GPA, or Grade Point Average, is a number that indicates how well or how high you scored in your courses on average. Usually a GPA scales between 1.0 and 4.0, however different countries and universities can have different grading systems.
B (recommended)

English requirements

TOEFL admission requirements TOEFL® IBT The TOEFL iBT® is given online through the internet at designated testing site. The test measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The score refers to the total score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading), each subject has a range of 0 - 30.
IELTS admission requirements IELTS The International English Language Test System (IELTS) tests your English-language proficiency on a scale of 1 – 9. The score refers to the combined average score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading).
