Mission of Department
The mission of the undergraduate program of the Department of Chemical Engineering encompassed three key aspects:
- Education: To offer an outstanding academic program to enable graduates master process synthesis, design, and operations knowledge and develop excellent technical, technological and leadership skills
- Research: To provide a vibrant interdisciplinary research program in engineering science, creating novel and sustainable solutions to serve public interests in areas such as health, energy and environment.
- Social Responsibility: To promote inclusive, safe, collaborative and respectful community for learning and work with integrity.
As a chemical or chemical-biological engineer, you are a member of a professional community defined not only by its training and work activity, but also by its responsibility to society and common consent to abide by certain standards of conduct in the execution of our work. Some of the standards are purely technical; for example, engineers are expected to use accurate data, perform valid computations, and abide by various codes of practice in design, construction, and operation.
Other standards concern matters less quantitative, but no less real or important. These are expressed in a code of professional ethics. Professional ethics address matters of right and wrong that arise in engineering practice.
A code of professional ethics provides explicit guidelines that reflect the common understanding of the professional community regarding what is or is not expected of its members. Individual circumstances may place an engineer in a position in which the best course of action is not obvious; in such cases, the code sets priorities for what is deemed ethical and responsible behavior. By abiding by this code, the individual engineer can expect the support of the professional community if a conflict arises as a result of actions taken in accordance with the established code of ethics. It guides the behavior of the individual engineer by stating the expectations of peer engineers. A code of ethics sets guidelines by which the profession can regulate itself, and dismiss individuals who by their behavior would damage the honor, credibility, and effectiveness of the profession. Support and maintenance of the code confers benefits on all members of the profession.

Program Educational Objectives
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) are broad statements that describe what the graduates are expected to achieve a few years after graduation. Keeping in view the vision and mission of the University and mission of its Undergraduate program, the Department of Chemical Engineering has defined following four PEOs for its Undergraduate program:
- PEO-1: To prepare graduates with strong technical education for practicing and applying the principles of Chemical Engineering and with excellent communication skills to enable them have successful careers in a variety of industrial and professional environment.
- PEO-2: To prepare graduates for rapidly changing technological environment with the core knowledge central to multidisciplinary development and personal improvement throughout their professional careers.
- PEO-3: To enable graduates pursue continued lifelong learning through professional practice, further graduate education, or other training programs in engineering sciences or other professional fields.
- PEO-4: To enable graduates achieve professional success with an understanding and appreciation of ethical behavior, social responsibility, and diversity, both as individuals and in team environments.
Program Learning Outcomes (PLOS)
The chemical engineering program has adopted the 12 graduate attributes, as listed in the PEC Accreditation Manual-2014. These PLOs are mapped to the university vision and mission and the program educational objectives. The PLOs are controlled through the curriculum and all the courses are mapped to thoroughly cover these PLOs. The Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs) of the Chemical Engineering Department are:
- Engineering Knowledge: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and all broadly defined aspects of polymer and process engineering to the solution of complex engineering problems.
- Problem Analysis: An ability to identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
- Design/Development of Solutions: An ability to design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
- Investigation: An ability to investigate complex engineering problems in a methodical way including literature survey, design and conduct of experiments, analysis and interpretation of experimental data, and synthesis of information to derive valid conclusions.
- Modern Tool Usage: An ability to create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modeling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
- The Engineer and Society: An ability to apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solution to complex engineering problems.
- Environment and Sustainability: An ability to understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.
- Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
- Individual and Team Work: An ability to work effectively, as an individual or in a team, on multifaceted and /or multidisciplinary settings.
- Communication: An ability to communicate effectively, orally as well as in writing, on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
- Project Management: An ability to demonstrate management skills and apply engineering principles to one’s own work, as a member and/or leader in a team, to manage projects in a multidisciplinary environment.
- Lifelong Learning: Ability to recognize importance of, and pursue lifelong learning in the broader context of innovation and technological developments.
