ABET Chemical Engineering (ChE)

The Rutgers University - New Brunswick program in Chemical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET www.abet.org.

ChE Program Educational Objectives

The current educational objectives of the Chemical Engineering program are:

  • be innovative, competent, contributing engineers
  • Apply engineering and science principles and methods to solve challenging, realworld engineering problems. Demonstrate excellent communication and teamwork skills. Adhere to high ethical standards.
  • take on new responsibilities, move into new areas of opportunity and assume leadership roles
  • Advance to positions of increasing responsibility and expertise. Earn promotions and assume team leadership positions. Interact and collaborate on multidisciplinary teams.
  • continue their professional development, with some obtaining advanced degrees in engineering and allied disciplines, including business, medicine and law
  • Engage in professional training to remain current in the field; transition into new areas through work experiences and/or completion of an advanced degree.
