Queen's has offered courses in Chemical Engineering since the turn of the century, when a four year BSc program in the subject was introduced in the Department of Chemistry. A separate Department of Chemical Engineering was established in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science in 1922.

In its early years, instruction focused on the design and operation of specific manufacturing processes - in particular, the production of explosives.
