Program Learning Objectives
1. Integrate knowledge of the diverse range of chemistry sub-disciplines as well as non-chemistry disciplines such as fluid flow, mechanics, and science of appearance, and apply it in their profession.
2. Use traditional and nontraditional thinking to define a problem, identify potential alternatives, gather appropriate knowledge and information to formulate and articulate a solution.
3. Think critically and be able to evaluate, design, and conduct research in the polymers and coatings field.
4. Effectively communicate as professionals in both individual and team-based environments.
5. Join polymer and coating related industries or advanced graduate programs and be immediately productive. Demonstrate dedication, loyalty and passion toward the chosen professional career.
