Mechanical Engineering Objectives and Outcomes
To satisfy the mission, the department has established the following educational objectives:
- Provide graduates with high-quality preparation for the practice of mechanical engineering at the professional level.
- Prepare graduates to pursue graduate studies, to engage in lifelong learning, and to offer service to their professions, community, and society.
- Prepare graduates to supply technical and engineering expertise to industry, government, and their community.
As specified for accreditation, the mechanical engineering program assures the students will be able to:
- apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering;
- design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data;
- design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability;
- function on multidisciplinary teams;
- identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems;
- identify professional and ethical responsibility;
- communicate effectively;
- apply the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context;
- recognize the need for, and an ability to engage in, life-long learning;
- identify contemporary issues
- use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools, necessary for engineering practice.
