Chemical Engineering Technology Program Conversion to an Online Certificate

Final Paper
View File

The Chemical Engineering Technology (ChET) program at Austin Peay State University (APSU) has been suspended after an extensive 3-year effort to convert the program to online delivery. One of the possible opportunities to recover this work involves the compression of the captured ChET body of knowledge into a 1-year, 30 credit hour certificate program. Three fit- for-purpose preparation courses (Math, Chemistry and Physics) will be developed using the analogous courses in the current ChET curriculum. It is expected that students will be allowed to “test-out” of the preparation courses. Then the existing eight ChET courses will be combined and compressed into 6 more-focused courses. The target audience for a certificate program includes experienced individuals currently working in the Chemical Process Industries (CPI) and the companies of the CPI that do not have a close relationship with a ChET education program.
