Mechanical Engineering ME - Educational Objectives & Learning Outcomes


The Mechanical Engineering Program Educational Objectives (PEO) are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years of graduation. Program educational objectives are based on the needs of the program’s constituencies. The Mechanical Engineering faculty, in conjunction with its constituents, has established the following program educational objectives:

  • Practice mechanical engineering in support of the design of engineered systems through the application of the fundamental knowledge, skills, and tools of mechanical engineering.
  • Enhance their skills through formal education and training, independent inquiry, and professional development.
  • Work independently as well as collaboratively with others, while demonstrating the professional and ethical responsibilities of the engineering profession.
  • Successfully pursue graduate degrees at the doctoral levels, should they choose.
