Process Engineering

Memorial’s Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science is one of the first schools in Canada to offer process engineering. This unique discipline is based on the principles of clean and green engineering and sustainable resource development. It is a broad field of engineering that encompasses the development, design, optimization and operation of sustainable processes for human needs. Process engineering places emphasis on the processing and production of petrochemicals, oil, gas, minerals, food and any other materials used to obtain valuable products.

Students and graduates of the process engineering program will be able to implement academic knowledge and integrated co-operative education experiences in a sustainable, efficient, safe and environmentally conscious manner to large-scale industrial development.
