Western's Green Process Engineering program is the first of its kind in Canada. The basic objective of the program is to combine and integrate the fundamental principles of chemical engineering to design commercial products and processes that are safe, economical and environmentally friendly. Some of the distinguishing features of the program include the emphasis on green chemistry, green power, solar and bio-fuel cells, and conversion of waste (such as agricultural byproducts) to bio-fuels.
Students entering the Green Process Engineering Program must have completed the common first year curriculum of Engineering with a minimum year-weighted average (YWA) of 70%.
