Chemical Engineering Undergraduate Accreditation

The Mission of our Program is to prepare graduates for professional careers in chemical engineering and/or graduate study through a program of recognized excellence in teaching and research.

Program Educational Objectives are statements that describe the expected accomplishments of graduates during the first few years after graduation. Our Program Educational Objectives are to graduate students that will:

  1. be employed as a chemical engineer or in another related technical field or successfully complete graduate or professional studies.
  2. demonstrate effective problem-solving skills that will enable them to successfully lead and contribute to professional activities.
  3. be able to function effectively in a professional environment to improve the human condition.
Student Outcomes are statements that describe what students are expected to know and are able to do by the time of graduation. Our Student Outcomes are to graduate students who will have:
  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, plan 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.

Our program is just the right size with lots of opportunities to participate, lead, and learn. Enrollment data are available here.
