#119 - B.S. Ch E: What Is It? (04A02)
This session invites papers discussing ideas and opinions about how chemical engineering undergraduate education has evolved and what to anticipate for the future. Proposals to present might include data on what is taught in various curricula, information regarding job opportunities and the demographics of jobs, differences between the undergraduate and graduate focus and how the definition of chemical engineering might differ between them. Any topic that helps us to define a "BS ChE, what is it?" are welcome.
