Chemical Engineering


The mission of the Department of Chemical Engineering is to produce well educated students for professional careers, to advance knowledge, and to make further contributions both in the field of chemical engineering and to society in general, through: a contemporary and dynamic curriculum; modern facilities; excellent teaching; research of high quality; interaction and cooperation with industry to relate and reduce theory to practice; and an intellectually stimulating and enriching environment.

Program Educational Objectives

Graduates of the Chemical Engineering Program at the University of Cincinnati will be able to:

  1. Apply their strong foundation in the theory and practice of chemical engineering to pursue successful careers in industry, academia, government, or other organizations and in graduate programs and professional schools;
  2. Use lifelong learning skills to take advantage of professional development opportunities in chemical engineering, acquire new knowledge, skills and adapt to changing global markets;
  3. Engage in professional service and volunteerism that benefits society and to develop innovative ideas to generate novel solutions that are ethical, socially responsible, safe and environmentally sustainable.

Student Learning Outcomes

These are Program Outcomes listed in the P-1 of the program.  Our Program Outcomes as referenced in the semester conversion materials are outcomes students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation.  These relate to the knowledge, skills, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program.   Currently, we use the outcomes which are the standard ABET Engineering Accreditation Commission required outcomes for engineering programs:

a. ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

b. ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data

c. ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety manufacturability, and sustainability.

d. ability to function on multidisciplinary teams

e. ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

f. understanding of professional and ethical responsibility

g. ability to communicate effectively, orally, visually and/or in writing.

h. broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context

i. recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning

j. knowledge of contemporary issues

k. ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
