Bioengineering and Chemical Engineering (AST2/MRP)(Plan Code: CHEBCAS)

Academic Plans, known as programs, include an overview description and a summary of program requirements. You can search the online catalog via the Academic Plan links on the right for a desired program or a specific course information. 

Students must earn a 2.0 cumulative GPA in order to qualify for graduation from Clark College and are encouraged to connect with their potential transfer institution to confirm GPA and course requirements for acceptance. It is recommended that students complete the sequenced science courses before transferring.

Program Outcomes

Program outcomes are overarching skills that are emphasized and reinforced throughout several courses in a specific program; they are measurable statements that define what students should know or be able to do by the end of a certificate or degree at Clark College. After successful completion of this program, students will be able to:

  • Interpret the human experience, within appropriate global and historical contexts, through evaluation, analysis, creation, or performance. (GE)
  • Articulate well-considered ideas and written claims to an academic audience, using effective rhetorical techniques, properly credited evidence, and a command of Standard English. (GE)
  • Obtain, evaluate, and ethically use information. (GE)
  • Evaluate, analyze, and explain events, behaviors, and institutions using perspectives and methods in the Social Sciences. (GE)
  • Demonstrate progress toward healthier behaviors. (GE)
  • Apply communication theory to demonstrate effective oral communication skills. (GE)
  • Analyze and interpret quantitative information presented verbally, graphically, numerically, and/or symbolically. (GE)
  • Apply a method of scientific inquiry, valid to the natural sciences, to evaluate claims about the natural world. (GE)
  • Demonstrate and clearly explain an effective strategy to solve a quantitative problem. (GE)
  • Analyze patterns of power, privilege, and inequity in the United States. (GE)
  • Analyze and solve multi-step problems using techniques through single-variable calculus.
  • Apply scientific and technological knowledge and methodologies to creatively solve technological or scientific problems.
  • Demonstrate understanding of the derivative as an instantaneous rate of change and the definite integral as a limit of a sum.
  • Apply fundamental principles and relationships from the Natural Sciences to analyze technological or scientific problems.
  • Acquire scientific and technological information from appropriate sources to examine issues, claims or situations.
