The undergraduate chemical engineering curriculum has been designed to provide the knowledge, skills, and competencies necessary for a sustainable and innovative chemical process development and design. It covers the core chemical engineering subjects such as thermodynamics, transport phenomena, and unit operations. CHE students are also exposed to computational tools and simulation such as MATLAB and ASPEN Plus. At the senior year, students learn advance design subjects such as process control, process design economics and flexible technical electives of their choice to give them the breadth of the profession.
- Program Accreditation
The undergraduate program Bachelor of Science (BS) in “Chemical Engineering” is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (https://www.abet.org).
Program Educational Objectives
The undergraduate program of Bachelor of Science (BS) in Chemical Engineering is designed to graduate students who are expected to attain (within a few years) of graduation the following PEOs:
- Achieve a successful career in the oil, gas, petrochemical, desalination, energy and other process industries.
- Integrate their academic preparation with chemical engineering practice, innovation and technology development.
- Pursue a graduate degree in chemical engineering or other related fields.
- Pursue leadership roles in industry, business, and governmental agencies.
The Chemical Engineering (BS) students by the time of graduation will have the ability to:
- 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.
