Program Educational Objectives
The Chemical Engineering Program has established the following objectives of the undergraduate program in support of our mission and that of the Institute. Graduates are expected to be able to attain these objectives within 5 years following graduation:
- Graduates will be able to use chemical engineering principles to solve problems of practical importance to society.
- Graduates will be productive and informed citizens of society as well as of their professional community and will be positioned for a lifetime of success.
- Graduates will be effective communicators.
In support of the three Program Educational Objectives, the Chemical Engineering Program has adopted the seven Student Outcomes established in ABET Criteria 3, (1)-(7), listed below.
Students shall demonstrate:
- 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.
