Welcome to Western!
Welcome to Western and the Graduate program in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering. We look forward to working with you during your stay at Western.
Graduate students all attend a department-specific orientation during the first week of their first term of study. Additionally, the Faculty of Engineering holds an orientation session during the first two weeks of each term for new students. Both sessions are mandatory for incoming students.
The upcoming Faculty of Engineering orientation session is scheduled for Tuesday, September 5th, 2017 from 1:30 to 3:330pm in SEB 1200.
The upcoming department-specific (CBE) orientation is scheduled for Friday, September 1st, 2017 from 10:00am to 12:00pm in SEB 2200.
You will receive your registration package during the department-specific orientation. This includes your Proposed Program form, which is to be completed within the first month of study.
There are Health and Safety training courses that need to be done within the first two months of study as well. These are also required to gain access to any labs or other specialized rooms on campus.
Failure to complete these courses can result in your student account being sealed. To lift the seal, a $50 fee is required as well as proof of completion of the Health and Safety training courses.
