Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes

Educational Objectives: B.S. in Chemical Engineering program

Having provided graduates with the technical, communication and professional skills, the thorough understanding of environmental, safety, ethical and social responsibility, and the ability to participate in interdisciplinary and intercultural teams, we expect that within a few years of graduation they will:

  • Demonstrate professional competence through career advancement or progress towards obtaining professional registration or certification in chemical engineering, an allied field such as environmental or materials engineering or a non-traditional field such as business or medicine;
  • Successfully complete a graduate degree in chemical engineering or another discipline; and
  • Volunteer their services to the profession through involvement with professional societies such as AICHE or to their respective communities through involvement with government agencies or nonprofit organizations.

Student Outcomes: B.S. in Chemical Engineering program

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. 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
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. 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
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plans tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
