Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes

Program Educational Objectives

The overall educational objective of our program is to develop effective practitioners in chemical engineering and associated fields. We expect that our graduates will contribute to the advancement of their chosen field, while remaining mindful of the ethical and social implications of their work. They will confidently apply knowledge in the basic sciences, mathematics, engineering analysis, and design to address problems in a broad range of disciplines. In keeping with the continuously evolving nature of the field of chemical engineering, we expect that our alumni will effectively communicate, engage in lifelong learning, and that many of them, inspired by research experiences as undergraduates, will continue their education in advanced degree programs.

Student Outcomes

Outcome 1: An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics

Outcome 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

Outcome 3: an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences

Outcome 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

Outcome 5: 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
