The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at The University of Akron offers a baccalaureate program leading to a Bachelor of Science in Corrosion Engineering (CORR), which is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
The program educational objectives define the expected accomplishments of our graduates within a few years after graduation. They are written to capture accomplishments across a broad range of occupations and to reflect what most employees in a technical setting will consider important.
The educational objectives of our Corrosion Engineering program are to prepare graduates who will
Attainment of the student outcomes prepare students to meet program educational objectives. The Corrosion Engineering Program has documented student outcomes that prepare graduates to attain the program educational objectives. The ABET, Inc. required a-k student outcomes are as follows:
Students must demonstrate
(a) an ability to apply knowledge of math, engineering, and science
(b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
(c) an ability to design system, component or process to meet needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
(d) an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
(e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
(f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
(g) an ability to communicate effectively
(h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
(i) a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
(j) a knowledge of contemporary issues
(k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
The Corrosion Engineering program has 15 student learning outcomes and map these onto the a-k ABET, Inc. Student Outcomes.
