Mission

The Chemical Engineering program strives to graduate chemical engineers who understand the ethical, social, economic and environmental context of their profession and who apply their knowledge with judgment and responsibility to develop ways to utilize the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind. The program prepares the students either to immediately enter professional practice upon graduation or to pursue graduate studies, without neglecting the requirements for a fruitful life by emphasizing the University model of liberal arts education. The curriculum of the program shares three basic tenants: scientific and technological excellence, balance between theory and practice, and a commitment to self-maintained and enduring personal and professional development. The results are chemical engineers naturally inclined to life-long learning and problem-solvers ready to deal with any technological challenge at local, regional and/or international scales.
