Introduction to research in Chemical Engineering, effective literature search, communication of results, lab safety, and research ethics.
This course is intended to provide students with an introduction to research in Chemical Engineering, effective literature search, communication of results, lab safety, and research ethics. It will prepare students interested in graduate education and research for a research career and will teach them skills necessary to suceed in such an environment.
I believe that the C&C committee will require the following changes:
A one-credit course should meet 50 minutes per week unless it is a lab course, in which case 100 minutes would be expected. The syllabus indicates 90.
Must match the catalog description. You can have additional information about how the course is taught too.
Title this section as “Learning Outcomes.” Change the terms “demonstrate knowledge” to observable, measurable action verbs like remember, apply, interpret, classify, summarize, explain, create. For more examples, see
Basically, how is the knowledge demonstrated?
Include the planned number of presentations and of writing assignments.
The following sections are required for every syllabus but missing from this one. See

Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We are moving your proposal forward to the Faculty Senate. It is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal.
The Curricula and Courses committee had a minor issue with your proposal. The syllabus’s attendance policy does not identify the penalty for absences in excess of 10% of class meetings. Please modify the policy and provide that information the next time the course is offered.
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
