Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years after graduation. Program educational objectives are based on the needs of the program’s constituencies (i.e. students, alumni, faculty, and employers).

The Department of Chemical Engineering has developed PEOs for the Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering program that are consistent with the mission and goals of UPRM and the department, as well as with ABET’s General Criteria for Engineering Accreditation in the United States. 

Our chemical engineering graduates are expected to: 

  1. Pursue careers as practicing chemical engineers in fields such as chemical, materials, energy environment, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, food processing and consumer products. 

  2. Pursue advanced studies in chemical engineering or a related technical discipline, medicine, law or business, if desired. 

  3. Succeed in their chosen career path, demonstrating high standards of professional, social and ethical responsibility.
