Accreditation

The BS in Chemical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

Program Educational Objectives

Within a few years after graduation, graduates of the chemical engineering program are expected to:

  1. Apply knowledge, experiential practice,  and complex system problem-solving skills to pursue related careers and/or advanced study.
  2. Use their technical and leadership abilities to engage in professional, community, and other activities to address global and societal needs in ethical and innovative ways.

Student Outcomes

The program must have documented student outcomes that support the program educational objectives. Attainment of these outcomes prepares graduates to enter the professional practice of engineering.

Student outcomes are outcomes (1) through (7):

  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.
