Bachelor of Technology in Industrial Chemical Processes
The Bachelor of Technology in Industrial Chemical Processes is a four year program that has a Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) curriculum. It integrates chemical engineering and chemistry experiences for the support of engineering activities in an industrial scenario. The curriculum provides instruction in the knowledge, techniques, skills, and use of modern equipment in chemical engineering technology. Graduates of the program are prepared to enter careers in process design, management and operation. Graduates of the program can also work in areas such as: manufacturing, laboratory, quality control, industrial safety, water treatment, environmental control and other jobs related to chemical processes.
“Provide a continuously improved academic experience in chemical engineering technology with industrial chemical processes emphasis, educating students to become responsible and competitive professionals who will serve the industry and the society.”
Graduates of the program are expected to:
- Meet the profile required by the industry for chemical engineering technologists in the areas of process and laboratory technology.
- Occupy technical support and managerial positions in the chemical processes industry and related fields.
- Address the ethical and social implications of their profession and the commitment to continuous professional development.
- Apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined chemical engineering technology problems appropriate to the program.
- Design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined chemical engineering technology problems appropriate to the program.
- Apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments and use appropriate technical literature.
- Conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and analyze and interpret the results to improve processes.
- Function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
- Apply operating principles (including testing and troubleshooting) of chemical processes and equipment in accordance with applicable safety (including process hazards), health and environmental standards.
- Apply chemical engineering principles (such as fluid mechanics, material and energy balances, heat transfer, reactions, thermodynamics, and separations) to the design, improvement, and operation of chemical processes and appropriate to program educational objectives.
- Apply instrumentation and process control, quality control, computer applications, and materials of construction to the design, improvement, and operation of chemical processes.
- Apply chemistry concepts and laboratory skills in inorganic and organic chemistry.
- Apply statistical process and quality control to chemical operations.
