Mechanical Engineering Objectives and Outcomes
The mechanical engineering program meet the needs of students, alumni, employers, and the faculty by assuring that a few years after graduation:
1. Our graduates are prepared for the practice of mechanical engineering and related disciplines at the professional level; and
2. Our graduates engage in lifelong learning and serve their professions and community.
As specified for accreditation, the mechanical engineering program assures the students will be able to:
Outcome 1. Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
Outcome 2. Apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
Outcome 3. Communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
Outcome 4. Recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental and societal contexts.
Outcome 5. Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
Outcome 6. Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
Outcome 7. Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
