JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY
REV. MAY 8, 2006
The department ensures that graduates of the program demonstrate:
- the ability to apply the fundamentals of chemistry, biology, mathematics and physics to chemical and biomolecular engineering practice.
- the ability to utilize chemical and biomolecular engineering principles to identify, formulate, and solve problems at the interface of engineering, chemistry, and biology.
- proficiency in the application of these principles to the design of products and processes, within realistic societal and engineering constraints.
- the ability to design, conduct, and evaluate experiments, including the analysis and interpretation of data.
- the ability to use the techniques, skills, and tools for modern engineering practice.
- a recognition of the importance of, and the ability to engage in life-long learning.
- knowledge of emerging applied science within chemical and biomolecular engineering, attained through electives and/or research.
- the ability to communicate in writing with technical and non-technical audiences.
- the ability to give effective oral presentations.
- the ability to work effectively, both independently and in multidisciplinary teams.
- an awareness of contemporary issues which have an impact on the discipline of chemical and biomolecular engineering, e.g. ozone layer depletion, global warming, current viability of alternate energy sources.
- an understanding of the global societal impact of chemical and biomolecular engineering.
- an appreciation of the professional and ethical responsibilities of chemical and biomolecular engineers.
