Educational Objectives

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering offers program leading to BS degree in Mechanical Engineering (B.S.M.E.). The program is distinctive in its emphasis on analysis, design and fabrication of systems – machines, engines, products and technologies – that provide conversion between mechanical, electrical and thermal energies. The Mechanical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

The educational objectives of the undergraduate Mechanical Engineering (B.S.M.E.) Program are to prepare graduates, within a few years after graduation, to be:

  • Working as a professional or as an entrepreneur in an area closely related to mechanical engineering, or
  • Exhibit lifelong learning by pursuing or having completed a graduate or professional degree and/or demonstrated professional development

Student Outcomes

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. 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
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
