The educational objectives of the chemical engineering program are to prepare students to enter and continue the practice of engineering and/or continue their education by study in graduate or professional school. Graduates will demonstrate:
- The ability to apply mathematics, engineering science, computer applications, and the natural sciences to chemical engineering problems.
- Entry-level competency in chemical engineering principles and practice, demonstrated by an ability to apply fundamental concepts to problems in chemical engineering and related disciplines.
- The ability to synthesize, develop, and evaluate alternative design solutions to chemical engineering problems, incorporating an understanding of economic, safety, and societal constraints.
- The ability to acquire, analyze, and communicate technical data using modern equipment and experimental techniques.
- Professional responsibility and sensibility to a broad range of societal concerns, such as ethical, environmental, regulatory, and global issues.
- Effective communication and team skills, and an awareness of the necessity for personal and professional growth.
