The Chemical Engineering Body of Knowledge provides a framework that highlights the areas of competence expected by employers of chemical engineering graduates. The Body of Knowledge could be a very useful tool when designing undergraduate courses. In this presentation some of the discrepancies between the education and training received by undergraduates versus the expectations of employers will be discussed. The potential role of the Chemical Engineering Body of Knowledge in bridging this gap will be highlighted.
