Abstract

COL is a fundamental principle equivalent to COE and COM in terms of application to all aspects of chemical engineering design, analysis, and practice. COL can be used as a concept and unifying theme integrated into the undergraduate chemical engineering curriculum to emphasize and reinforce consistent application of COL principles, increase student awareness and capabilities, and help meet revised ABET accreditation requirements. One author's university-University of Minnesota, Duluth-has officially adopted COL for use in its undergraduate chemical engineering program. Other universities may benefit from a similar approach.
