It is the versatility of chemical engineers that makes them attractive to so many industries and professions. The current state of the profession is being transformed by the needs of increasingly diverse industries. The companies that have recently hired our undergraduates make diverse products and provide a range of services: medical devices, cement, combustion engineering, energy engineering, semiconductors, personal care products, mineral processing, petroleum refining, oil services, energy production, water purification, environmental engineering, natural gas pipelines, and petrochemicals. A number of recent graduates have been admitted to graduate school, law school, and medical school. The undergraduate program prepares students in fundamentals while providing exposure in diverse areas of chemical engineering. The core subjects in chemical engineering include fluid mechanics, heat transfer, chemical thermodynamics, reaction engineering, mass transfer, and separations. An Emphasis in Energy Engineering is available. The Department has a strong record of involving students in research and cooperative education experiences. Roughly 80 % of our graduating seniors have had co-op or research experience and many have had both. Learning Outcome: An expected learning outcome is a formal statement of the body of knowledge, practical skills and higher-order thinking skills that a student is expected to master by the time the degree is conferred. Mastery of learning outcomes can be shown by actions that are taken by the student that are both observable and measurable. Students can use these statements to gain a high-level understanding of the expectations of the faculty. This communication of expectations serves as an aid to prospective students in choosing an appropriate degree program to pursue. Students can also use these statements to ensure that they complete their mastery of the knowledge and skills during their studies. Professors can use these statements to improve the academic quality of their degree programs. This is done by collecting evidence of learning outcomes (student work) and comparing it against the ELOs to identify potential weaknesses in the curriculum. The university maintains the highest possible academic standards by engaging in a continuous cycle of expressing ELOs, evaluation of the evidence, and making any necessary changes to the curriculum.
