Chemical Engineering Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)
Engineering KnowledgeAn ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
Problem AnalysisAn ability to identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
Design/Development of SolutionsAn ability to design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations
Investigation An ability to investigate complex engineering problems in a methodical way including literature survey, design and conduct of experiments, analysis and interpretation of experimental data, and synthesis of information to derive valid conclusions.
Modern Tool UsageAn ability to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modeling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
The Engineer and SocietyAn ability to apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solution to complex engineering problems.
Environment and SustainabilityAn ability to understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.
Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
Individual and Team WorkAn ability to work effectively, as an individual or in a team, on multifaceted and /or multidisciplinary settings.
CommunicationAn ability to communicate effectively, orally as well as in writing, on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
Project ManagementAn ability to demonstrate management skills and apply engineering principles to one’s own work, as a member and/or leader in a team, to manage projects in a multidisciplinary environment.
Lifelong LearningAn ability to recognize importance of, and pursue lifelong learning in the broader context of innovation and technological developments.
The main purpose of defining PLOs is to ensure the achievement of PEOs.
