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:
- That they will exhibit strong skills in problem-solving, leadership, teamwork, and communication;
- That they will use these skills to contribute to the various communities, both local and global, within which they work, live, and function;
- That they will make thoughtful, well-informed career choices; and
- That they will demonstrate a continuing commitment to and interest in education (their own and others’).
Graduates from our baccalaureate program should have:
- an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
- an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
- an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints
- an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
- an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
- an ability to communicate effectively
- the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
- a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
- a knowledge of contemporary issues
- an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
- an ability with engineering application of the basic sciences to the design, analysis, and control of chemical, physical, and biological processes, including the hazards associated with these processes.
