Program Educational Objectives

Program Educational Objectives (PEOS) are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years after graduation.

Within a few years of graduation, graduates of the BSME program will:

  1. be satisfactorily employed in professional mechanical engineering-related careers that utilize their knowledge, applied technical skills and applied problem-solving abilities
  2. use their technical, analytical, interpersonal, leadership, professional and communication skills to advance in their careers and contribute towards the sustainable development of the region and beyond, and
  3. remain professionally current and engage in the pursuit of life-long learning.

Student Outcomes

Student Outcomes (SOs) describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. Attainment of these outcomes prepares graduates to enter the professional practice of engineering.

By the time of graduation, students in the BSME program should be able to demonstrate:

  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
