Program Educational Objectives
EO1 practice mechanical engineering in support of the design of engineered systems through the application of the fundamental knowledge, skills, and tools of mechanical engineering.
EO2 enhance their skills through formal education and training, independent inquiry, and professional development.
EO3 work independently as well as collaboratively with others, while demonstrating the professional and ethical responsibilities of the engineering profession.
EO4 successfully pursue graduate degrees at the Master's and/or Ph. D. level.
