Program Educational Objectives
Within three to five years of graduation, graduates of the Mechanical Engineering program will:
- Successfully apply mathematics, science, and engineering principles to analyze and solve engineering problems.
- Practice engineering in a global and societal context utilizing a strong liberal arts foundation.
- Pursue lifelong learning and continuous improvement of their knowledge and skills in designing physical systems, components, or processes.
The graduates shall have the ability to...
...identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
...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.
...communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
...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.
...function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
...ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
...acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
