Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering- ABET
The Mechanical Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org, under the General Criteria and the Mechanical Engineering Program Criteria.
The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering has established the following set of program educational objectives for the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering:
- Graduates will be able to use mechanical engineering principles, proficiencies, and technical information to pursue graduate school or engineering careers including but not limited to design, development, project management and technical sales and business development.
- Graduates will be equipped to pursue continued lifelong growth and development in engineering, including learning and applying new engineering processes, tools, and technologies.
- Graduates will be able contribute to the state-of-the-art in engineering design, research and problem solving, including consideration of professional responsibilities.
Program outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These are as follows:
An ability to identify, formulate and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
An ability to 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
An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
An ability to 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
An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
The objectives are regularly reviewed by the constituents of the department's programs, including industrial representatives, students in the program, and the faculty of the department.
The objectives are used to focus the undergraduate degree program and assure the best possible education to our students
