Student Outcomes

Student outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation.  These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program.  In order to meet our program educational objectives, we will prepare our students to know the following:

  1. The ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to problem solving.
  2. The ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  3. The ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints.
  4. The ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams.
  5. The ability to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems.
  6. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  7. The ability to communicate effectively.
  8. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  9. A recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
  10. Knowledge of contemporary issues.
  11. The ability to use the techniques, skills and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
