Mechanical Engineering Learning Outcomes
Below is a list of knowledge and skills you will have gained by the time you successfully complete the Mechanical Engineering program.
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principals 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 judgements, 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 judgement to draw conclusions.
- An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
Approximately five years after earning the B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, it is expected that graduates will:
1. Be employed as a mechanical engineer and perform all functions assigned to a mechanical engineer including completing engineering designs and other applications using both practical and theoretical knowledge characterized by their interdisciplinary strengths;
2. Function effectively both as a leader and as a member of project teams, demonstrating effective communication skills and ethical behavior;
3. Achieve positions of increased responsibility within an organization and practice continued education through advanced degree or certificate programs or participation in continuing education in engineering or related professional fields;
4. Adapt to changing industrial and technological advancements and be committed to continuous improvement.
