The Baha and Walid Bassatne Department of Chemical Engineering and Advanced Energy offers two degrees, namely, the Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering, and the Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical Engineering.
The undergraduate curriculum for the degree of Bachelor of Science (BS), Major: Chemical Engineering is a four-year program. It consists of 140 semester credit hours of course work of which 30 credits are completed in the freshman year while the student is enrolled in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and 110 credits are completed in three years while the student is enrolled at the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture.
The undergraduate curriculum for the degree of Bachelor of Engineering (BE), Major: Chemical Engineering is a five-year program. It consists of 173 semester credit hours of course work of which 30 credits are completed in the freshman year while the student is enrolled in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and 143 credits are completed in four years while the student is enrolled at the Maroun Semaan Faculty of Engineering and Architecture. Students who are admitted at the sophomore level will be required to complete either 110 credits in three years to earn the BS degree or 143 credits in four years to earn the BE degree.
Student OutcomesThe program must have documented student outcomes that support the program educational objectives. Attainment of these outcomes prepares graduates to enter the professional practice of engineering. Student outcomes are outcomes (1) through (7), plus any additional outcomes that may be articulated by the program.
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.
Bachelor of Engineering (BE) in Chemical Engineering and Bachelor of Science (BS) in Chemical Engineering were accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, https:/www.abet.org, from October 1, 2013.
