Fall Term Courses


Compulsory Research Course

Note: CBE 9100: Advanced Engineering Communications is for all research-focused (MESc/PhD) graduate students who began their program on or after May 1, 2016.

CBE 9100 - Advanced Engineering Communications

The Advanced Engineering Communication Course is designed to enhance your ability to effectively communicate in these different contexts by introducing you to effective written, oral, and visual communication skills. Assignments/evaluations will make use of the graduate student¿s research data to translate course material into practical use.

Note: Students enrolled in MESc and PhD studies starting May 1, 2016 are required to take CBE 9100 before graduation.

Fall 2017 Courses

CBE 9160 - Transport Processes

This is a graduate-level course comprising momentum, energy, and mass transport. Principles of momentum transport (viscous flow), energy transport (heat conduction and convection) and mass transport (diffusion) will be covered. A variety of engineering examples will be provided to give students a feel for how momentum, heat and mass transport is applied in engineering practice and to develop an intuitive understanding by emphasizing the physics and physical arguments.
