ME: Objectives & Outcomes


Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The Mechanical Engineering program provides students with an in depth education in the conceptual foundations of Mechanical Engineering. It allows them to explore the connections between mechanical engineeirng and a variety of other disciplines in engineering and outside. Combined with a strong education in mathematics, science, and the liberal arts it prepares students to be leaders in mechanical engineering practice, applications to other disciplines and research.

Program Educational Objective 1: (PEO1)

Apply technical knowledge and skills as mechanical engineers to provide optimal solutions in industrial and government organizations.

Program Educational Objective 2: (PEO2)

Pursue advanced education, research and development, and other creative and innovative efforts in science, engineering, and technology, as well as other professional careers.

Program Educational Objective 3: (PEO3)

Practice professional and ethical responsibilities, including the societal impact of engineering solutions.

Program Educational Objective 4: (PEO4)

Participate as leaders in their fields of expertise and in activities that support service and economic development nationally and throughout the world.
