Graduate Student Handbook
This Graduate Student Handbook has been prepared to bring together in one place instructions and information, which should be helpful for new and continuing graduate students in the Department of Chemical Engineering at McMaster University.
The information in this Handbook is specific to the Department of Chemical Engineering.
Graduate students are responsible for reading the Calendar of the School of Graduate Studies and taking the necessary action regarding registration, submission of theses and so on that are specified therein. Particular regulations for graduate study, for example, those pertaining to Comprehensive Examinations, which have been created within the Department of Chemical Engineering, are specified in this Handbook. As changes in the School of Graduate Studies or Departmental regulations occur, the Department of Chemical Engineering will attempt to keep the graduate students informed. Questions arising from a study of the calendar should be directed to the attention of the student's research supervisor, or to the Chair of the Department.
Graduate students finding errors or ambiguities in this Handbook, or having any suggestions for additional material, are urged to make their comments known, in writing, to the Administrator, Kathy Goodram.
