Mission Statement

Mission

To provide a solid and current technical foundation that prepares students for a career in chemical engineering or related fields.

Goals

To educate and support diverse students and prepare them to be leaders in chemical engineering or related fields.

Objectives

Within a few years of graduation, UMChE graduates will have attained leadership roles among peers in chemical engineering, or another field, such as medicine, law, business and education, through:

  • effectiveness as proactive and creative problem solvers and innovators
  • ability to think critically to solve relevant problems
  • effectiveness as communicators to gain and convey information
  • competence and comfort in multifunctional and multicultural environments
  • exhibiting and demanding high ethical standards

Outcomes

The outcomes we desire are that graduates of the University of Michigan Chemical Engineering Program demonstrate:

  • 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.
