Vision and Goals

Jim Pfaendtner with a studentVision

Our vision is to influence the chemical engineering profession through the development of graduates, research outcomes, and an educational approach that thoroughly integrates quantitative molecular design and nanoscale principles with the continuum and system-level foundations of the discipline.
 

Goals

  1. Establish a new chemical engineering curriculum that integrates quantitative molecular design and nanoscale principles so our graduates have unique tools to succeed in growing areas of technology and the economy.

  2. Recognize and promote research that successfully integrates molecular design and nanoscale principles with core chemical engineering competencies to foster departmental leadership in areas where the college/university/region has inherent advantages.

  3. Create a critical mass of influential and successful alumni (graduate and undergraduate).

  4. Become an internationally recognized leader for the integration of molecular design and nanoscale principles into the chemical engineering profession.
