Word from the Director

frankWelcome to the website of the Department of Chemical Engineering of École Polytechnique de Montréal. This website contain all the pertinent information on our undergraduate and graduate programmes.

Take the time to have a look at the Chemical engineering profession section; you will discover all the fascinating challenges and career opportunities now opened to our future graduated students! Through selected examples, you will see how chemical engineers can play a crucial role in assuring and improving everyone’s quality of life!

As a specialist in process design and operations, chemical engineers are heavily involved in many economic sectors of society. We participate in the development and exploitation of emerging sources of renewable energy. We also contribute to improving the quality of the environment by re-engineering polluting processes as well as by developing innovative technologies for waste treatment. In the food and pharmaceutical industry, chemical engineers design efficient fabrication processes and are responsible for quality control. Our active implication in the fields ofnew polymeric materials, biomedicine and biotechnology places us at the heart of stimulating challenges driven by the rapid evolution of our society needs and expectations.
