About the Program
The UND Department of Chemical Engineering offers Bachelors, Masters, and Ph.D. degrees in Chemical Engineering.
UND's Chemical Engineering B.S. program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The next scheduled ABET accreditation visit is in November 2021.
It is our vision to offer an unsurpassed, personal undergraduate chemical engineering education, coupled with a top-tier quality, research-centered graduate program. The department’s primary objective is the education of undergraduate students so that, upon graduation, they are prepared to take responsible entry-level positions in a wide range of industries. Research and professional activities by members of the faculty, conducted in collaboration with graduate and undergraduate students, provide training for our students on how to succeed as researchers.
Program Educational Objectives
The Chemical Engineering program prepares graduates for future professional growth in a broad spectrum of careers. Our program educational objectives describe the expectations for graduates within a few years following their graduation. Graduates of the UND Chemical Engineering program will:
- Be highly competent in conducting the assignments and activities associated with their chosen career path.
- Attain promotions and/or accept responsibilities beyond their entry-level position in the chemical process and broadly related industries or be pursuing advanced degrees.
- Be trained, prepared, and ready from day one of their jobs and will continue to develop professionally throughout their careers.
- Work effectively in teams and as leaders to solve problems and clearly communicate results.
- Act with integrity and consider the safety, sustainability, and social consequences of their decisions and activities.
ABET Student Outcomes
To enable continuous program improvement, the department utilizes an assessment, analysis, and feedback process. A set of assessment instruments is used to demonstrate that the department's graduates demonstrate the following student learning outcomes:
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- An 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
- An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- An 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
- An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
- An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
