The educational objectives of the Chemical Engineering undergraduate program are to prepare students for career and professional accomplishments after graduation including:
- Successfully practice as an engineer or in some other professional pursuit, including traditional or emerging fields of chemical engineering.
- Enter and successfully participate in a graduate or professional program that continues their career development.
By the time of graduation, our students attain the following student outcomes:
- an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
- an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
- an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
- an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
- an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
- an ability to communicate effectively
- the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
- a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
- a knowledge of contemporary issues
- an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
The undergraduate chemical engineering degree program (BSChE) is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org
