Mission

cumnock_hallThe mission of the Department of Chemical Engineering is to produce competent graduates.  The program builds a strong foundation for the professional development of its students, and graduates are well equipped for a wide variety of positions as practicing chemical engineers or for graduate studies in engineering and science.  Through specialization in the option areas of biological engineering, nanomaterials engineering, nuclear engineering and paper engineering, graduates obtain special skills, so that they are actively pursued by local and regional industries and government because of their ability to immediately contribute to solving today’s engineering problems.  Department faculty members develop and maintain interactive associations with alumni, local and regional industries and professional societies to continually assess, modify, improve and support the program.
