MSChE Accreditation

The CSULB Master of Science in Chemical Engineering program is seeking accreditation from the WASC Senior College and University Commission,

Program Educational Objectives

The objective of the CSULB Master of Science in Chemical Engineering program is to produce graduates who will be able to: 

  1. Apply foundational knowledge of mathematics, science, humanities, and social sciences 
  2. Synthesize technical knowledge of engineering analysis and design to identify, formulate, and solve problems 
  3. 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. 

Student Learning Outcomes

Students who complete the CSULB Master of Science in Chemical Engineering program will be able to: 

  1. Solve problems in mathematics through probability, statistics, and differential equations 
  2. Select and conduct engineering experiments, and analyze and evaluate the resulting data 
  3. 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 
  4. Develop solutions to well-defined chemical engineering problems 
  5. 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 
  6. Analyze a situation involving multiple conflicting professional, legal, and ethical interests, and determine an appropriate course of action 
  7. Organize and deliver effective written, verbal, and graphical communications 
  8. Assemble new knowledge through life-long, independent learning without the aid of formal instruction 
  9. 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.
