The vision of the department is to be a center of inspired learning that nurtures innovation, critical thinking, and leadership in chemical and biomolecular engineering education and research.
In fulfillment of this vision, our mission is to train students to utilize molecular information and discovery to create innovative products and processes by emphasizing fundamental understanding of physical, chemical, and biological processes; engineering design and synthesis; leadership; ethics; and interdisciplinary perspectives on technology, economic, and social issues.
Objectives and Bylaws
Our undergraduate and graduate programs produce creative innovators who are capable of taking leadership positions in chemical and biological engineering. CBE graduates possess the knowledge base, intellectual skills, and professional commitment that prepare them for innovative technical leadership, graduate study, productive service to society, and continued professional growth through lifelong learning. Preparation is based in the attainment of the Program Educational Objectives identified below, regular evaluation of the achievement of these objectives, and use of evaluation results to improve the educational process.
- Graduates of the UT chemical engineering program will meet or exceed the expectations of employers of chemical engineers.
- Qualified graduates of the UT chemical engineering program will pursue graduate or advanced professional study if desired.
- Graduates of the UT chemical engineering program will continue their professional growth through lifelong learning.
- Graduates of the UT chemical engineering program will pursue career progression toward positions of technical or managerial leadership.
Graduates as leaders and innovators, not just highly skilled specialists.
