Tian-gui WANG, Qian PAN


Typical bachelor’s programs of chemical engineering of United States, Germany and China are introduced and compared briefly. Several representative course plans are displayed to show their difference. Through comparison, it can be found that American programs emphasize more science and theory, and German programs pay more attention to practice or skills, with China’s between them. Considering the huge number of students and very limited resources of Lab and internship, the authors suggest that China’s bachelor programs of chemical engineering and technology should adopt either American model or German model but not the combination model. The present combination model is out dated.
