The Bachelor of Science in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET ( under the General Criteria and the Program Criteria for Chemical, Biochemical, Biomolecular and similarly named engineering programs.”

Georgia Tech’s Cooperative Program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Cooperative Education.

Program Educational Objectives

The faculty of ChBE strives to continuously improve our undergraduate program in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering. The educational objectives reflect the needs, and have been reviewed by, among others, the Advisory Board, the faculty, and the students:

  • Graduates will be recognized for excellence and leadership and selected for high-impact industrial, academic, government, and other professional positions
  • Graduates will be intellectual leaders in solving global problems in a diverse and evolving landscape of technology, environment, and public policy
  • Graduates will demonstrate critical-thinking and problem-solving abilities in developing creative, innovative, and ethical solutions to contemporary challenges using the tools of chemical and biomolecular engineering
  • Graduates will engage in self-initiated, life-long learning for professional growth in their chosen career paths.

These objectives were reviewed and approved by the ChBE Faculty and External Advisory Board in 2014 and 2018.The next review by the program's constituencies as defined within ChBE's ABET process will take place in or before 2022

Student Outcomes

These objectives reflect the needs of our constituencies and have been reviewed and validated by our constituents.

Graduates are expected to be able to demonstrate:

Upon graduation, students will have obtained:

(1) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.        

(2) 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.     

(3) an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.   

(4) 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.  

(5) 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.           

(6) an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.          

(7) an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
