What indeed is this new major? This course is mainly about use management methods to manage the hazardous chemicals. Well managing the chemicals which may bring harm to humans and society Including properly and safely keeping chemicals Investigating and punishing illegal hazardous chemicals use Preventing hazardous chemicals leaks Controlling the circulation of hazardous chemicals use
What will students learn? What are some key classes they might take? Cultivating students to gain the knowledge of both chemistry and management Hazardous Materials in Chemistry, Destruction Mechanism, Hazardous Materials & Accident Solving Lab Managerial Economics, Business Statistics, Management Accounting, Supply Chain Management, Operations Management, and Human Resource Management
CHM Classes Description Hazardous Materials in Chemistry (3 cr.) This course mainly concern with explosive, corrosive and flammable products in modern industry, students will learn their property and methods to stabilize them. Destruction Mechanism (3 cr.) In this course students will learn why materials is hazardous, how the corrosion and explosion happen in microscopic scale and what combination of elements could form hazardous materials. Hazardous Materials & Accident Solving Lab (2 cr.) Students can do experiments to observe how true hazardous materials damage the surroundings and use proper methods to restrict the reactions and minimize the damage.
Goals & Outcomes Students with B.S. in Hazardous Chemicals Management typically get jobs in these following positions: In government Safety Officer In school Lab Analyst Related Course Instructor In a chemical enterprise and factory Industrial Facilities Manager Financial Manager Industrial Engineer
Impact On Communities It improves the safety of hazardous chemicals use. Students graduated from this major can help hazardous products storage facilities to prevent spontaneous accidents. They can also deal with terrorism attacks, hazardous materials fallout and even help to handle natural disaster. People can maximize the utilization of hazardous chemicals. People often give up using dangerous but effective materials only because they worry about the safety problem.
Why should students choose this major? Not only master the knowledge of management but also have a good command of chemistry Relatively higher salary Safer than pure Chemistry Protect your family, the people you love, and even the whole society from hazardous chemicals Improve your IQ (scientific literacy) and EQ (humanistic literacy)
Connection to “Purdue Move” Well correspond to the multidisciplinary Research that is an important point of Purdue Move— This is a multidisciplinary major that combines two unrelated majors together to better meet the demand of the world. Courses in this major are designed to on researches that show how students get the best learn efficiency— Most of the courses are not lectures but labs and group works. Students can interact with each other and instructors to gain more experience and practice leadership.
Why Excited People who work in this discipline can often fell a sense of accomplishment because every time they prevented an accident from happening they saved many lives. They can do dangerous experiments in the Labs of this major with an expert of this area, which are much more exciting than normal MGMT courses and safer than normal CHM courses. People who take this major can find job positions with higher salaries than general MGMT since this major is focus on professional fields of both Management and Chemistry. Promote both IQ (scientific literacy) and EQ (humanistic literacy)
5 questions you may have What’s the proportion of chemistry and management occupy in this new major? Well, we want to reclaim that this major doesn’t cultivate persons to be researchers on chemistry or management. Instead, it should be applied talents. They have both the knowledge of chemistry and management. So there is no specific or quantifiable outcomes of how much should each major occupies. Maybe the management major will account for more proportions.
5 questions you may have Is there a certificate of this major? Yes. I think we will create a Working Certificate just like Certificate of Accounting Professional. Graduates who want to work in this field should get this certificate before getting a job. This measure also encourages more people to join this field. No matter you are a graduate in this major or not, as long as you gain the knowledge of this major and pass the certificate exam, you definitely can work in this field.
5 questions you may have What’s the expected salary I can get? We set the expected salary to be around 70000 dollars per year. Here are the reasons. Compared with pure chemistry major or management major, you have more additional and professional values. And it’s a major related to people’s personal safety. So the salary will be higher than pure management major or chemistry major.
5 questions you may have Is there any extension of this major? Unfortunately, there is weak extension in this major. But people in other fields are relatively easy to join this field. Just like working as an accountant that I have said in question 2. You pass the exam and you can pursue a job related to accounting. So does this major.
5 questions you may have Is it dangerous to study or work in this field? No. Like what I have said in Question 1. The management major will account for more proportions. So in general, you are an administrative staff instead of chemical researcher. You don’t need to and won’t have many direct accesses to hazardous chemicals.
