Student Outcomes (SOs) describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the knowledge, skills, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program. Attainment of these outcomes prepares graduates to enter the professional practice of engineering. Beginning on the academic year 2019-2020 the Chemical Engineering Program at UPRM implemented as its outcomes the (1) through (7) articulated by the EAD-ABET. 

The SOs for the Chemical Engineering Program at UPRM are: 

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics. 

  2. 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. 

  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences. 

  4. 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. 

  5. 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. 

  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.

  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
