Relationship of Program Outcomes to Program Educational Objectives

We attempt to formulate our PO such that in producing them we will cause our PEO to be met. The PO support achievement of our PEO when the skills, knowledge, and attitudes learned by students in our academic program are put into practice in the workplace or in post-graduate study. Success in producing these PO should send our graduates on a trajectory toward a successful career in the practice of chemical engineering, thereby fulfilling the Department’s mission in undergraduate education. A mapping of the ABET Outcomes that support each PEO is provided below.
