Program Educational Objectives and Learning Outcomes

The Manufacturing Engineering Program Education Objectives (PEO's) are aligned with the Program's Mission, Values, and Vision. Manufacturing Engineering graduates shall:

  1. Be leaders in the field of manufacturing,
  2. Be life-long learners and contributors to the field of manufacturing,
  3. Positively contribute to society, their communities, and their church; and
  4. Understand the ethical, economic, social, and environmental impact of manufacturing on society.

As required by ABET, the Expected Learning Outcomes for the BS degree are listed as a set of Student Outcomes, shown below.

Achievement of the Student Outcomes is ensured by achieving a set of Course Outcomes. Each of the required courses has several Course Outcomes. Instructors have the flexibility to pursue additional learning but the Course Outcomes are required content for the course, regardless of the instructor.

  1. Complex Engineering Problems
    An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. Engineering Design
    An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  3. Communication
    An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. Ethics and Professionalism
    An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  5. Teamwork
    An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  6. Experimentation
    An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. New Knowledge
    An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
