Mechanical Engineering's Program Educational Objectives & Outcomes

Within three to five years of completing their degree, graduates will be:

  • Applying their Mechanical Engineering education as active contributors in the workforce or graduate school.

  • Effectively communicating technical information in a diverse and globally integrated society.

  • Demonstrating their commitment to continued professional development through training, coursework and/or professional society involvement.

  • Exemplifying ethical and social responsibility in their professional activities.

The Program Educational Outcomes of the Mechanical Engineering program are the same as those required by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). BSME graduates will demonstrate:

a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
c) an ability to 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
d) an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
g) an ability to communicate effectively
h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
i) a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
j) a knowledge of contemporary issues
k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
