Program Outcomes (Mechanical Engineering)
At the successful completion of the program curriculum, students will be able to:
- Apply principles of mathematics and applied science to perform technical calculations and solve technical problems.
- Visualize 3D objects and draw them in 2D, both by sketching and through the use of computer-aided drafting software.
- Analyze a loaded beam.
- Collect and analyze experimental data.
- Analyze a body in motion and describe using position, velocity, and acceleration.
- Identify characteristics of steel, ceramics, and plastics.
- Design and carry out experiments.
- Identify and apply appropriate standards necessary to complete a project.
- Produce a complete set of drawings sufficient to manufacture a part, including dimensions and tolerances.
- Solve engineering problems through computer modeling, employing an engineering computer language, and hand calculations.
- Conduct standard tests, collect data, and apply results to improve processes.
- Design systems, components, or processes.
- Function professionally and with ethical responsibility as an individual and on multidisciplinary teams.
