Abstract

Safety was first listed as a criterion for Chemical Engineering programs for the 2012-13 ABET accreditation cycle. In order to address this criterion, chemical engineering departments have been developing methods to incorporate safety into their program. The University of Iowa satisfies this criterion through a required junior-level chemical process safety course that was first offered during the Spring 1996 semester. A major laboratory component was added to this course in 1998 to provide students with numerous hands on experiences. While a dedicated chemical process safety course is the most straightforward method of addressing this ABET criterion, the criterion can also be addressed by incorporating safety into existing courses.

Thoughts About Meeting the ABET Safety Requirements For Chemical Engineering Programs
