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 identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
- an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
- an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
The undergraduate chemical engineering degree program (BSChE) is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org
