Mechanical Engineering Program Objects


Mission Statement

The mission of the mechanical engineering program is to provide and sustain a quality, state-of-the-art education in mechanical engineering that enables students to develop specialized knowledge and experience required to practice as professional mechanical engineers or to pursue a course of analytical study. The program offers prospective engineering students the opportunity to explore an engineering field by providing basic core and advanced engineering courses.

Vision Statement

An accredited program in mechanical engineering will serve the state and region by providing a quality engineering education that enables students to achieve excellence in their field of study.

Mechanical Engineering Program Educational Objectives

The Mechanical Engineering program seeks to prepare graduates who, after the first few years of their career, have:
  1. Established themselves as valued practicing mechanical engineers working primarily in the region.
  2. Become supportive members of the community and active professionally, seeking continuous improvement of skills and professional growth.

Program Learning Outcomes

The Program Learning Outcomes describe what the students are expected to know or be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire in their matriculation through the program. The Engineering Department seeks to graduate mechanical engineers who, upon graduation:
