Department of Chemical Engineering



Accreditation


Chemical Engineering

The Chemical Engineering (CHE) Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Committee of ABET <http://www.abet.org/>. We have a continuous improvement process in place within the Department to ensure compliance with ABET requirements. This process is overseen by a faculty member from the Undergraduate Committee, Dr. Kawai Tam, who is assisted by Chemical and Environmental Engineering staff. We regularly collect quantitative metrics for all our courses to ensure that the program outcomes and educational objectives are met. In addition, we collect regular inputs from the Industrial Advisory Board, students, faculty and alumni to continuously evaluate, update and improve the objectives. In Fall of 2016, the Chemical Engineering total enrollment was 325 students. In Spring of 2017, 84 B.S. degrees were awarded.

Chemical Engineering Program Objectives

The program's educational objectives are to produce graduates who attain high levels of technical expertise to enable their achievement in diverse chemical engineering practice and research, or in allied careers, prepare them for graduate level education, and enable them to be successful members of the professional community, for the benefit of our constituents.

Chemical Engineering Student Outcomes

"Skills, knowledge, and behaviors" acquired by the time of graduation:

  • 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.

Environmental Engineering

The Environmental Engineering (ENVE) Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Committee of ABET <http://www.abet.org/index.aspx>. We have a continuous improvement process in place within the Department to ensure compliance with ABET requirements. This process is overseen by a faculty member from the Undergraduate Committee, Professor David Kisailus, who is assisted by Chemical and Environmental Engineering staff. We regularly collect quantitative metrics for all our courses to ensure that the program outcomes and educational objectives are met. In addition, we collect regular inputs from the Industrial Advisory Board, students, faculty and alumni to continuously evaluate, update and improve the objectives. In Fall of 2016, the Environmental Engineering total enrollment was 131 students. In Spring of 2017, 29 B.S. degrees were awarded.
