This aim of this project is to improve students’ abilities in solving chemical engineering problems by implementing, in the chemical engineering curriculum, a consistent and effective approach to problem solving. The key concept is to foster in students an understanding of the structure of chemical engineering problems from early courses, and to implement the same approach throughout their undergraduate training by reinforcing a consistent methodology. The project is supported by surveys on students' confidence level in problem solving which are used to adapt our teaching to students' needs. In the present contribution, an overview of the project is given and potential applications of a proposed concept map throughout the curriculum is discussed.
