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.

Program Educational Objectives

The graduates of the Chemical Engineering program should be able to:

  1. 1.Practice professionally in diverse work environments by appropriately applying chemical engineering fundamentals and by using state-of-the-art computational tools within the broad range of the chemical engineering profession;
  2. 2.Advance within their careers as team members or leaders with the ability to think critically and communicate effectively in order to solve multidisciplinary problems taking into account ethical and environmental constraints; and
  3. 3.Engage in ongoing professional development and research activities by either continually learning and improving or pursuing graduate studies.

Program Learning Outcomes (based on ABET criteria)

The graduates of the Chemical Engineering program will have:

  1. 1.An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics;
  2. 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. 3.An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences;
  4. 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. 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. 6.An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions;
  7. 7.An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
