The Chemical Engineering option is a comprehensive degree that trains the students to apply the principles of chemistry to solve problems involving the production or use of chemicals. Chemical engineers transform raw materials into high-value products, design processes and equipment for large-scale chemical manufacturing, plan and test methods of manufacturing product and treatment of byproducts, and supervise the overall production process. Magnolia ,Arkansas, is home to many world-class leading developers, manufacturers and marketers of complex chemicals and services. Our program offers students numerous opportunities to engage in real world chemical engineering that is guaranteed by practical experience our students will receive through co-ops and industry internship opportunities.
- Our graduates effectively communicate scientific knowledge.
- Our graduates have the knowledge to make informed and ethical scientific decisions.
- Our graduates utilize appropriate quantitative skills in making decisions.
- Our graduates demonstrate the information literacy required for scientific study.
- Our graduates possess the knowledge and skills in engineering and the physical sciences to be successful.
