Become one of tomorrow’s technological leaders in industrial chemical processes with a chemical engineering bachelor’s degree from Stevens.
The chemical engineering bachelor’s program educates you to become a future technological leader through in-depth training on conception, synthesis, design, testing, scale-up, operation, control and optimization of industrial chemical processes that impact our well-being.
The chemical engineering bachelor’s program provides a foundation in chemical engineering science and experimentation, the use of modern computational tools such as ASPEN software for the simulation of chemical reactors and separators, and design and research experience with a faculty member to prepare you for the chemical engineering practice. A specialized, eight-semester design sequence sets this program apart, culminating in the last three semesters with chemical engineering design projects which are both experimental and computational.
An ABET Accredited Program
This undergraduate program is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.
The chemical engineering program educates technological leaders by preparing them for the conception, synthesis, design, testing, scale-up, operation, control and optimization of industrial chemical processes that impact our well-being. As an indicator of our readiness for accomplishing this objective, our program has been accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), which is recognized as the worldwide leader in assuring quality and stimulating innovation in applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology education. Consistent with ABET’s standards, we aim for the following chemical engineering program objectives in graduates who complete the Stevens curriculum and are employed in the chemical engineering profession.
The educational objectives of the chemical engineering program indicate expectations from our graduates a few years after graduation. The program faculty in collaboration with the School of Engineering’s Education and Assessment Committee, the department’s External Advisory Board, and alumni developed these objectives. The objectives follow:
Graduates of the Stevens Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical Engineering are expected to:
