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):

  • Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  • 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.
  • Communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • 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.
  • Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  • Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  • Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

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.
