Reactions, interactions and creation - the science and study behind the building blocks of life.
Chemical Engineering offers a general program as well as specialized options in "extractive metallurgy" and "environmental sustainability"
Chemical engineers are creative problem-solvers who use their scientific and technical knowledge to develop processes and designs, operate plants to make useful products at a reasonable cost and carry out research to assure the safe and environmentally-sound manufacture, use and disposal of chemical products.

Courses focus on organic and physical chemistry, statistics and chemical processes and reactions, among other subjects.
Co-Operative Education in Chemical, Mechanical or Mining Engineering
Co-operative (Co-op) education at Laurentian University is a plan of work-integrated learning where students, starting in the second year, put their academic knowledge into action through two paid discipline-related work terms.
Work terms begin at the end of the second year for a period of 4 months (April to August of the same year). After completing the third year, the student will undertake a placement of 16 months from April to August of the following year. The student will then return to complete one full year of academic study.
Advantages for Students
integrate your studies with practical experience
gain knowledge and exposure to a wide variety of professions
earn money that can substantially contribute to your expenses while a student
acquire necessary work habits and skills
learns to function as a key member of a team
gain a significant advantage upon graduation, not only in finding employment of your choice but also in obtaining one with higher pay and more responsibility due to your experience in the workforce
Students will get an "S" on their transcript ("satisfactory" after due review of each work term, work term report and company evaluation). If the student completed 16 to 20 months of the required placement, it will reflect on their diploma.
Advantages for Employers
In addition to employing highly motivated and committed individuals with an engineering background at a very reasonable cost, you can observe their progress and suitability over a succession of placements for potential full-time employment once they graduate.
The selection process ensures that students in the co-op program:
are high academic achievers
possess good communication skills
have positive attitudes
are adaptable and eager to work with others
have leadership potential
Admission is based on academic performance and individual interviews through which factors, such as motivation, interpersonal and communications skills are evaluated.
A minimum overall average of 70% is required for entry into the program and must be maintained.
For entry into Work Term 1, students must have completed all required core courses from the 2nd year of the program.
For entry into Work Terms 2, 3, 4 and 5, students must have completed all required core courses from the 3rd year of the program.
Refusal to accept a reasonable and legitimate placement position when offered may result in removal from the co-op program.

The Calling of an Engineer
The Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer has a history dating back to 1922, when seven past-presidents of the Engineering Institute of Canada attended a meeting in Montreal with other engineers. One of the speakers was civil engineer Professor Haultain of the University of Toronto. He felt that an organization was needed to bind all members of the engineering profession in Canada more closely together. He also felt that an obligation or statement of ethics to which a young graduate in engineering could subscribe should be developed. The seven past-presidents of the Engineering Institute of Canada were very receptive to this idea.
Haultain wrote to Rudyard Kipling, who had made reference to the work of engineers in some of his poems and writings. He asked Kipling for his assistance in developing a suitably dignified obligation and ceremony for its undertaking. Kipling was very enthusiastic in his response and shortly produced both an obligation and a ceremony formally entitled "The Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer."
The object of the Ritual can be stated as follows: The Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer has been instituted with the simple end of directing the newly qualified engineer toward a consciousness of the profession and its social significance and indicating to the more experienced engineer their responsibilities in welcoming and supporting the newer engineers when they are ready to enter the profession.
The Ritual is administered by a body called The Corporation of the Seven Wardens Inc./Société des Sept Gardiens inc. The seven past-presidents of the Engineering Institute of Canada in 1922 were the original seven Wardens. The Corporation is responsible for administering and maintaining the Ritual and in order to do so creates Camps in various locations in Canada. The Ritual is not connected with any university or any engineering organization; the Corporation is an entirely independent body. The Ritual has been copyrighted in Canada and in the United States.
The Iron Ring has been registered and may be worn on the little finger of the working hand by any engineer who has been obligated at an authorized ceremony of the Ritual of the Calling of the Engineer. The ring symbolizes the pride which engineers have in their profession, while simultaneously reminding them of their humility. The ring serves as a reminder to the engineer and others of the engineer's obligation to live by a high standard of professional conduct. It is not a symbol of qualification as an engineer - this is determined by the provincial and territorial licensing bodies.

Note: Please consult with the School Director for other relevant courses.
To be in good academic standing and progress in the BEng program, a student must:
1) Meet all conditions of admission
2) Not fail more than 6 credits in any one year
3) Achieve an overall average of 3.5 GPA (or C letter grade or 60%) in all passed courses in the previous year (or previous 30 consecutive credits)
A student is subject to a one year probationary period for failure to meet any of the above criteria under academic standing.
A student is required to withdraw from the Bharti School of Engineering if he or she:
1) Does not satisfy all conditions after one probationary year or 30 consecutive credits
2) Fails 42 credits or more
3) Has not achieved good academic standing in two consecutive years or 60 consecutive credits
4) Fails to obtain the minimum academic grade and satisfactory lab performance where appropriate in a course on a third attempt
A student who is required to withdraw may petition the Senate Committee on Acadaemic Regulations and Awards for readmission after one calendar year. Such an appeal should have a recommendation from the director of the school before being considered by the committee.
Students in good academic standing who choose to discontinue their studies at the end of the first or any other year, with successful completion of that year, may apply for readmission with advanced standing. Cases are considered on an individual basis.
***Time limit: The Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) degree must be completed within seven (7) years of initial registration in the program.
