Program: Mechanical Engineering
Faculty of Science
Bachelor of Science (Honours)
From the experimental to the theoretical, our program exposes you to all major fields of chemistry: physical, analytical, organic, inorganic and chemical biology.
Students in our program gain important problem-solving skills for the 21st century. Graduates may also pursue advanced degrees in medicine, law, business, education, and research-based Master of Science and PhD programs.
Pursue your studies through the Honours Chemistry program, or choose to specialize in one of the following areas:
Current Ontario secondary school students must complete the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) with six 4U or 4M credits including English (ENG4U), Advanced Functions (MHF4U), and two of Biology (SBI4U), Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U), Chemistry (SCH4U) or Physics (SPH4U). In addition, a combined minimum 70 per cent average in prerequisite math and science courses is required. It is recommended that all four of MCV4U, SBI4U, SCH4U and SPH4U be taken.
Note: Admission is competitive. The specific average or standing required for admission varies from year to year. Students are selected by taking into consideration a wide range of criteria including school marks, distribution of subjects taken, and performance in subjects relevant to the academic program. Possession of the minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance. Preference will be given to applicants with the best qualifications.
There are many opportunities for graduates in chemistry, whether pursuing higher education or entering the workforce. The following list is just a starting point:
Materials science sector
Secondary school teaching (through Concurrent Education)
An Honours undergraduate degree in Chemistry will also allow you to pursue graduate studies, including the university’s Master of Science programs in Materials Science or Applied Biosciences.
