The CSULB Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
The Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering Program Educational Objectives are to produce well-rounded graduates who, after entering the chemical engineering practice, will progress to leadership roles by:
- Applying the knowledge, principles, and skills of chemical engineering to the solution of complex engineering problems;
- Practicing safety, sustainability, and ethics throughout their professional careers;
- Communicating effectively and working collaboratively in multidisciplinary teams;
- Pursuing lifelong learning through continued education, professional registration, and participation in professional organizations.
The Chemical Engineering program uses the same 7 student outcomes that are recommended by ABET. These student outcomes are employed to gauge the quality of education that the ChE program is providing.
- 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.

The objective of the CSULB Master of Science in Chemical Engineering program is to produce graduates who will be able to:
- Apply foundational knowledge of mathematics, science, humanities, and social sciences
- Synthesize technical knowledge of engineering analysis and design to identify, formulate, and solve problems
- Develop skills necessary to organize and manage groups, to make ethical decisions, to assume leadership roles in their workplace, to function professionally in a globally competitive world, and to communicate engineering results effectively.
Students who complete the CSULB Master of Science in Chemical Engineering program will be able to:
- Solve problems in mathematics through probability, statistics, and differential equations
- Select and conduct engineering experiments, and analyze and evaluate the resulting data
- Apply relevant knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems, including problems in process development, chemical production, and chemical plant safety
- Develop solutions to well-defined chemical engineering problems
- Design a system or process to meet desired needs, including sustainability and within other realistic constraints, such as environmental, economic, social, political, ethical, health and safety, and manufacturability
- Analyze a situation involving multiple conflicting professional, legal, and ethical interests, and determine an appropriate course of action
- Organize and deliver effective written, verbal, and graphical communications
- Assemble new knowledge through life-long, independent learning without the aid of formal instruction
- Demonstrate attributes supportive of the professional practice of engineering; apply leadership principles to direct the efforts of a small group to solve a relatively constrained problem; and function effectively as a member of a multidisciplinary team to solve open-ended engineering problems.
