Program Educational Objectives and Learning Outcomes

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years after graduation. PEOs are reviewed annually with pertinent constituencies to ensure currency.

Student Outcomes (SOs) describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. SOs are assessed throughout the curriculum, and the data subsequently evaluated, to provide feedback to the Chemical Engineering program. This feedback is used for continuous program improvement.

A link to the department's ABET Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes can be found here.

Learning Outcomes (LOs): In accordance with the expectations for university accreditation by the Northwest Accreditation Committee (NWAC), the department has developed a set of of Learning Outcomes described here.
