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 1922.

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