Mechanical Engineering Student Outcomes
"Student Outcomes" are statements of the knowledge and skills that students in an educational program are expected to demonstrate by the time of graduation. The faculty have established the 12 outcomes listed below for students pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree program in mechanical engineering. Students' success in achieving these outcomes is measured regularly using a variety of assessment tools such as in-class problems and surveys.
1. Students will analyze and design structural systems.
2. Students will analyze and design mechanical systems in motion.
3. Students will analyze and design thermal systems and processes.
4. Students will use engineering software in design and analysis and will create engineering software.
5. Students will apply mathematics, physics, chemistry and material properties.
6. Students will collaborate in classroom and laboratory settings.
7. Students will produce effective documents and oral presentations.
8. Students will plan and manage technical projects.
9. Students will grow professional through independent learning.
10. Students will take the Fundamentals of Engineering examination as the first step toward professional licensure.
11. Students will have knowledge of professional laws and codes.
12. Students will understand the personal and professional roles of an engineer in society.
