PROGRAM CRITERIA

Describe how the program satisfies any applicable program criteria. If already covered elsewhere in the self-study report, provide appropriate references.

Chemical, Biochemical, Biomolecular, and Similarly Named Engineering Programs

Lead Society: American Institute of Chemical Engineers

These program criteria apply to engineering programs that include “chemical,” “biochemical,” “biomolecular,” or similar modifiers in their titles.

1. Curriculum

The curriculum must provide a thorough grounding in the basic sciences including chemistry1, physics2, and/or biology3, with some content at an advanced level, as appropriate to the objectives of the program. The curriculum must include the engineering application of these basic sciences to the design4, analysis5, and control6 of chemical, physical, and/or biological processes, including the hazards7 associated with these processes.

These criteria are accomplished through courses across the BSCHE as highlighted by the superscripts above and the courses noted below.

  1. CHEM 115 (4), CHEM 116 (4), CHEM 313 (3), CHEM 314 (3), CHEM 315 (2), CHEM 433 (3)
  2. PHYS 215 (3), PHYS 215L (1), PHYS 216 (3), PHYS 216L (1)
  3. BIOL 211 (3)
  4. CHME 305 (3), CHME 306 (4), CHME 307 (3), CHME 441 (3), CHME 455 (3)
  5. CHME 392 (3), CHME 352L (1), CHME 452L (1), CHME 455L (1), I E 311 (3), I E 365 (3), CHME 323L (1), CHME 324L (1), CHME 423L (1)
  6. CHME 412 (3), CHME 424L (1), CHME 455 (3)
  7. CHME 441 (3), CHME 448 (3), CHME 455 (3)
