What will I learn?

Chemical Engineering is an interdisciplinary, problem-focused program for students interested in a challenging and rewarding career. Chemical Engineers are addressing some of the most pressing problems today. Graduates enter a growing global profession with myriad career opportunities, from work with global companies to entrepreneurial startups.

Program Objectives

Our mission is to prepare you to enter the workforce as a skilled and experienced engineer who is ready on day one to jump onto complex projects in research labs and companies with your own ideas and strategies. We expect that, as a student or graduate of the Chemical Engineering B.S. program, you will exhibit the following in these areas:

Engineering Practice: Graduates of our program are successfully engaged in the practice of chemical engineering within industry, academe, and government working in a wide array of technical specialties including but not limited to process and plant design operations.

Professional Growth: Graduates of our program advance their skills through professional growth and development activities such as graduate study in engineering or complementary disciplines, and continuing education; some graduates will transition into other professional fields such as business, law, and medicine through further education.

Service: Graduates of our program perform service to society and the engineering profession through participation in professional societies, government, civic organizations, and humanitarian endeavors.

Learning Outcomes

In the Chemical Engineering program, you will gain a foundational and practical understanding of engineering principles and design, while also learning to apply skills from many disciplines toward solving real-world problems. To that end, we will encourage you to seek out experiences and mentors on- and off-campus to advance your knowledge of the field by learning at the sides of professional engineers. We view this as critical to jumpstarting your careers.

We specifically aim for our students to meet the following learning outcomes: 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 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 chemical engineering practice.
