One of the leading Chemical & Materials Engineering Departments in North America, we have strong external research funding from government and industrial sources. Our faculty hold many prestigious national and international awards including six NSERC chairs, seven Canada Research Chairs and a Canada Excellence Research Chair.

On the national scene, one of our professors has been awarded the University-Industry Synergy Award and two others have won the top award given out by the Canadian Society of Chemical Engineering (CSChE), the RS Jane Award.

Four members of our Department have received the CSChE's Syncrude Canada Innovation Award, presented to a chemical engineer who has made a significant contribution to the field under the age of 40.

Five professors have been awarded international research fellowships in recognition of their research excellence, three professors have received Alberta Science and Technology Awards, one has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and two have been elected as Fellows of the Canadian Academy of Engineering.
