The Otto H. York Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering shares the four-pronged mission of New Jersey Institute of Technology: education, research, service and economic development.
MISSION OF THE OTTO H. YORK DEPARTMENT OF CHEMICAL AND MATERIALS ENGINEERING
The mission of the department is to :
- educate undergraduate students for employment in industry and the pursuit of graduate studies;
- educate graduate students for employment in industry, government, or academe;
- educate students, both undergraduate and graduate, for leadership roles;
- engage in research to support the advanced education of graduate students, maintain the intellectual vitality of the faculty, and expand the frontiers of knowledge in areas of importance to the state and nation;
- publish and present the results of our intellectual activities, resulting from both research as well as teaching advances;
- serve our profession through membership and leadership on national and international societies, journals and editorial boards, and
- serve our wider constituencies by offering our expertise to industries, state and local communities, and pre-college students and teachers.
Chemical Engineering Program Education Objectives and Student Outcomes
1. Engineering Practice:
Graduates of our program are successfully engaged in the practice of chemical engineering within the industry, academe and government working in a wide array of technical specialties including but not limited to process and plant design operations.
2. Professional Growth:
Graduates of our program advance their skills through professional growth and development activities such as graduate study in engineering or complementary disciplines, and continuing education; some graduates will transition into other professional fields such as business, law, and medicine through further education.
Graduates of our program perform service to society and the engineering profession through participation in professional societies, government, civic organizations, and humanitarian endeavors.
Graduates of the Otto H. York Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering will have:
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- 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
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- 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
- 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
- an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
