The authors present the statistical results of the 2015 AIChE Education Division survey on how chemical engineering courses are taught. This year’s survey covers process control. The survey was conducted of faculty members teaching process control courses at their institution during the 2014-2015 academic year. Department administrators were solicited via email requesting that the instructors responsible for teaching process control at their institution respond to the survey, and instructors of record for relevant courses were contacted directly by email when practical. The survey was conducted online using the open-source survey package LimeSurvey. The survey questions this year were developed in consultation with CACHE Corporation and with the AIChE Education and Assessment Committee. The report consists primarily of the statistical and demographic characterization of the course and its content, with some additional summary responses related to the course from open-ended questions. Additionally, the survey seeks to bring out the most innovative and effective approaches to teaching the course as cited by instructors.
