Chemical Engineering Program Educational Objectives

The program educational objectives for the chemical engineering program are statements of what the program graduates should be able to achieve several years after graduation:

1. Graduates obtain positions in industrial, government, academic or other organizations, which use their technical knowledge and professional skills.

2. Graduates have continued their professional education through formal course work leading to advanced degrees, or through non-degree continuing education or informal study.

3. Graduates have advanced to positions of increasing responsibility, with some attaining positions of leadership.

The Chemical Engineering program has established the following student outcomes (SO):

  • 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 such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
  • An ability to function on multidisciplinary 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

The Tagliatela Engineering School is committed to graduating students that have strong technical communication skills and understand the fundamentals of entrepreneurship. Our chemical engineering courses incorporate these skills into their curriculum.

See the Curriculum Map for students graduating in 2017 or 2018.

Advisors can discuss individual plans with students that are interested in additional majors, minors, or specific program areas (sustainability or biomedical engineering).
