Mission

The mission of the Russell School of Chemical Engineering is to provide a modern, high-quality educational experience for all students in order to graduate chemical engineers who are technically competent, creative, literate, and socially aware.

Accreditation

The B.S. degree program in chemical engineering  is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org

Program Goals

The educational objectives of the chemical engineering program 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.

Program Learning Objectives

Students earning a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering programs will be able to:

1. Display fundamental understanding of basic genetics and evolution through (a) responses on lecture quizzes and tests, (b) responses on laboratory quizzes and practical exams, or (c) written reports from laboratory exercises.

2. Demonstrate basic knowledge of cell structure and function and molecular biology through (a) responses on lecture quizzes and tests, (b) responses on laboratory quizzes and practical exams, or (c) written reports from laboratory exercises.

3. Demonstrate basic knowledge of comparative organismic diversity through (a) responses on lecture quizzes and tests, (b) responses on laboratory quizzes and practical exams, or (c) written reports from laboratory exercises.

4. Demonstrate an understanding of basic organismal adaptations to ecological environments through (a) responses on lecture quizzes and tests, (b) responses on laboratory quizzes and practical exams, or (c) written reports from laboratory exercises.

5. Analyze and evaluate scientific data and/or current literature; this will be assessed through experimental design, problem solving, presentations, class discussions, class essays, or term papers.

Undergraduate Academic Programs

The Russell School of Chemical Engineering offers courses leading to the Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering (B.S.Ch.E.)  degree.

Students, in conjunction with their advisors, may choose elective courses that form a cohesive area of specialization within chemical engineering, including a pre-med option. Qualified students may also pursue undergraduate research culminating in a senior research project. Students who have been admitted to the University’s Honors Program may also participate in undergraduate research in chemical engineering. Exceptionally well-qualified students, with their advisor’s approval, may make additional substitutions in the curriculum to allow further specialization in their selected areas of interest.

Students majoring in chemical engineering with an interest in a foreign language may choose to earn dual degrees through the International Engineering/Science and Language Program .

A co-op program, where students work in an approved industrial employment setting for up to three semesters during their B.S. degree, is optional. Students are responsible for finding employers for the co-op program and obtaining approval.
