Chemical Engineering at UTC
The mission of UTC’s chemical engineering program is 3 fold:
- To provide students with the knowledge and skills required for a wide range of careers and graduate study.
- To provide service to the profession in our region and beyond.
- To maintain a supportive environment that encourages our students and faculty to achieve.
UTC’s chemical engineering program produces graduates who, upon entering the work force or advanced studies:
- have the ability to function as chemical engineers
- agree that the environment at UTC was conductive to their achieving
- are able to work effectively in multidisciplinary teams
- are progressing toward professional registration
- participate in professional societies
- pursue graduate studies
Prior to graduation, each graduate of UTC’s chemical engineering program will demonstrate:
- The ability to apply fundamental knowledge in engineering sciences, mathematics, physics, chemistry and computer applications
- The ability to use advanced chemistry, engineering principles and modern engineering tools to identify, analyze, and solve chemical engineering problems.
- The ability to design and conduct experiments using modern computer-based data acquisition, analysis, and controls.
- The ability to design chemical processing systems and components.
- The ability to work in interdisciplinary teams and to communicate effectively.
- An understanding of professional ethics, the process of registration, and the need for and ability to engage in continuing professional education.
- The knowledge of contemporary issues and the recognition of the impact of chemical engineering decisions within the global and societal context.
