Program Educational Objectives
The Educational Objectives of the Mechanical Engineering Program are to produce graduates who:
PEO1: Are thoroughly trained in methods of analysis, including the mathematical and computational skills appropriate for Mechanical engineering problem solving.
PEO2: Have developed the skills pertinent to the design of Mechanical engineering systems, including the ability to formulate problems, to think creatively, to synthesize information, to work collaboratively, and to communicate effectively, in at least four of the following major Mechanical engineering areas: environmental, structures, transportation, geotechnical and water resources.
PEO3: Are able to use current experimental and data analysis techniques for Mechanical engineering applications.
PEO4: Are prepared for successful Mechanical engineering careers through training in basic management, business and public policy topics and will continue to learn and adapt to changing technologies, procedures and concepts in Mechanical engineering.
PEO5: Have an understanding of their professional and ethical responsibilities.
PEO6: Will demonstrate that they possess the skills and knowledge necessary to function effectively in roles of leadership and service to the public, in the communities where they live and work.
