Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes

Program Educational Objectives

  • Our graduates will apply their knowledge to areas beyond their coursework, enabling them to succeed as engineers in: society, graduate or professional studies, and lifelong learning.
  • Our graduates will contribute to safety and make ethical engineering and societal decisions.
  • Our graduates will successfully contribute to the design, manufacture, implementation and management of engineering systems.
  • Our graduates, equipped with strong engineering fundamentals, will have the flexibility and competence to adapt in a changing world.
  • Our graduates will be innovative and able to develop and communicate ideas and solutions, either as effective technical leaders, team leaders, or team members.
