Program Objectives

Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering

Our Program Educational Objectives are to prepare graduates such that, within a few years of graduation, they have established chemical engineering careers in the petroleum, natural gas, chemicals, alternative energy, environmental, materials or biotechnology industries, and/or have begun graduate studies in chemical engineering or related fields such as medicine, law and business administration.

To meet these educational objectives, students in the program will attain:

  1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  2. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  3. An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
  4. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  5. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  6. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  7. An ability to communicate effectively
  8. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
  9. A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  10. A knowledge of contemporary issues
  11. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

 

Master of Science in Chemical Engineering

Graduates of the thesis-based (Master of Science) program should be able to:

  1. Demonstrate a more advanced understanding in chemical engineering fundamentals compared to the B.S. degree holders.
  2. Display the ability to conduct research in a field of specialization within chemical engineering, and effectively communicated their findings orally and in writing to a technically literate audience.
  3. Illustrate ethical awareness of responsible conduct of research.

Master of Engineering in Chemical Engineering

Graduates of the non-thesis (Master of Engineering) program should be able to:

  1. Demonstrate a more advanced understanding in chemical engineering fundamentals compared to the B.S. degree holders.
  2. Display the ability to perform and communicate an independent study in a field of specialization within chemical engineering.
  3. Illustrate ethical awareness.

Doctor of Philosophy in Chemical Engineering

Graduates from the Ph.D. program should be able to:

  1. Demonstrate a critical understanding of scientific and engineering principles underlying their fields of interest.
  2. Apply scientific and engineering principles creatively through advanced methods of analysis, research and synthesis, and effectively communicated their findings orally and in writing to a technically literate audience.
  3. Illustrate ethical awareness of responsible conduct of research.
