The mission of the Department of Mechanical Engineering is to provide educational opportunities for students seeking to enter the mechanical engineering profession, so that they can achieve competence in the field while recognizing their social responsibilities. The program provides a strong foundation in the areas of mathematics, basic sciences, engineering theory and practice, and the humanities and social sciences. It encourages further self development and life-long intellectual achievement through personal reflection. The program seeks to build student skills in written and oral communication, socially, economically and environmentally responsible decision making, and professionalism.
The following program objectives have been designed to support both the Mechanical Engineering department and university missions:
Professional: attain a position in civil engineering or related field,
Personal: participate in ongoing personal and professional growth and learning as demonstrated by completion of advanced degrees or through other forms of continuing education, and
Societal: contribute to society or the profession through involvement in professional organizations or other service activity.
At the time of graduation, our Mechanical Engineering students are expected to have
(a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering,
(b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data,
(c) an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability,
(d) an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams,
(e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems,
(f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility,
(g) an ability to communicate effectively,
(h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context,
(i) a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning,
(j) a knowledge of contemporary issues, and
(k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
