BS in Chemical Engineering Program Details

The department recognizes that our graduates will choose to use the knowledge and skills they have acquired during their undergraduate years to pursue a wide variety of career and life goals and we encourage this diversity of paths.

Whatever path our graduates may choose, be it a job, graduate school, or volunteer service, be it in engineering or another field, within the next 5 years and beyond, we expect our students to meet the following objectives:

  1. That they will exhibit strong skills in problem-solving, leadership, teamwork, and communication;
  2. That they will use these skills to contribute to the various communities, both local and global, within which they work, live, and function;
  3. That they will make thoughtful, well-informed career choices; and
  4. That they will demonstrate a continuing commitment to and interest in education (their own and others’).

Graduates from our baccalaureate program should 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.
