The School of Applied Chemical and Environmental Sciences offers education in chemistry, chemical engineering and environmental engineering, and prepares graduates for exciting careers or further study in these areas.
Chemists solve problems in the laboratory; chemical engineers solve them in the chemical and environmental industries. One of the hallmarks of the Chemical and Environmental Sciences programs at Sheridan is a strong emphasis on hands-on laboratory work. Our labs include state-of-the-art equipment for chemical analysis and a large set of pilot plants that model industrial operations for environmental control and chemical production applications.

The Environmental Control post-graduate certificate program offers an opportunity for graduates of science and engineering programs to reorient their previous education towards careers in the environmental industry. Students enjoy the benefits of working on a project directly with an industry partner and an optional co-op component provides a paid work term.
Dr Ewa Iwanek leads multinational, multi-institutional NSERC-funded research project
Dr Ewa Iwanek, a professor in the School of Applied Chemical and Environmental Sciences, had the remarkable experience of working with scientists from across the globe on her recent catalyst research project. Working with ceria catalyst specialist Leonarda Liotta, from Italy, and two former colleagues from Poland, Ewa realized her dream of working with renowned catalyst specialists, producing a truly multinational, multi-institutional research paper.
As part of Dr Iwanek's NSERC Engage grant, she worked with specialists and Industrial partner, DCL International, to synthesize supports for noble metal catalytic systems. Dr Iwanek's research team, including four Sheridan research assistants, explored methods that can be used to better assess and engineer suitable catalysts for modern exhaust purification systems that meet Canadian emission standards.
DCL is an important Industry leader; their mission statement "preserving and improving the environment we live in" is not only a cornerstone of their business, but a goal of the Applied Chemical and Environmental Sciences professor.
The research article has just been published in the journal "Catalysts".
