The Chemical and Molecular Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. More information can be found here:

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

PEO 1: The graduates from the program will assume positions in industry or research institutions that require knowledge of chemical engineering principles.

PEO 2:  The graduates from the program will demonstrate leadership, teamwork, ethical conduct and effective communication skills.

PEO 3:  The graduates of the program will be engaged in lifelong learning in order to meet the constantly emerging needs of the chemical engineering profession.  

PEO 4: The graduates of the program will succeed in graduate programs in chemical engineering or related professions such as medicine, business and law.

Enrollment Data


This table provides official fall-term enrollment figures (snap shot of headcount major) for the current and preceding four academic years and undergraduate and graduate degrees conferred during each of those academic years. The "current" year means the academic year (F2015- S2016). FT--full time; PT--part time.

Students designated “U4” have completed 85 or more credits. Not all of these students will have completed the program requirements for graduation, due to transfer status, the choice to complete one or more minors (or even a second major), having changed majors at some point in their academic careers, or other reasons. Hence the total number graduating each year will be significantly fewer that the total of students with U4 status in that year.
