ABET Accreditation

The Chemical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org, under the General Criteria and the Program Criteria for Chemical, Biochemical, Biomolecular and Similarly Named Engineering Programs.

BS Chemical Engineering Educational Objectives

Within a few years of graduation, graduates of the chemical engineering program at The University of New Mexico are expected to attain one or both of the following Program Educational Objectives (PEOs):

  • Actively participating in and contributing to their chosen professions and/or communities with increasing responsibilities, innovation and entrepreneurship, and/or leadership.
  • Demonstrating commitment to life-long learning through activities, such as pursuing advanced study in a graduate or professional program, new skills, proficiencies, and credentials.

Chemical Engineering Student Outcomes

By the time our graduates complete the chemical engineering program, they will have successfully demonstrated the following:

  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.

Enrollment data since 2007

Faculty in the CBE department also manage two graduate interdisciplinary programs where students advised by our faculty get degrees. Hence we are listing the enrollments in all three programs.
