Vision

Building a better world through leadership and innovation in science, technology, and education.

Mission

To advance knowledge, educate the next generation of chemical engineers, and address the scientific and technological challenges of a diverse, global society.

The Chemical Engineering Undergraduate Program at the University of Delaware is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

The Program Educational Objectives of our Department are:

  • To provide students with the breadth of educational opportunities in the chemical and biological sciences and in engineering that will enable them to pursue productive careers.
  • To maintain an environment that enables students to identify and pursue their personal and professional goals within an innovative educational program that is rigorous and challenging as well as flexible and supportive.
  • To educate graduates who will be able to apply their knowledge of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, including their problem solving, analytical, design, and communication skills, in the private or public sectors and/or in the pursuit of more advanced degrees.
  • To cultivate graduates who will actively seek to provide technical, educational, public sector and/or business leadership in a rapidly changing, increasingly technological, global society and who recognize their professional responsibility toward the betterment of our community.

Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Student Outcomes

The graduates of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering should demonstrate that they have:

  • the ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  • the ability to 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
  • the ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  • the ability to 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
