Provide an open, student-friendly environment with frequent student-faculty interaction that results in a quality undergraduate mechanical engineering education and enables our graduates to practice their profession with proficiency and integrity.
Mechanical Engineering Program Educational Objectives evaluated 2 to 5 years after graduation:
- Graduates are effective team members, aware of cultural diversity, who conduct themselves ethically and professionally.
- Graduates use effective communication and technical skills.
- Graduates build upon and adapt knowledge of science, mathematics, and engineering to take on more expansive tasks that require an increased level of self-reliance, technical expertise, and leadership.
Mechanical Engineering Program Student Outcomes:
- An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
- An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
- 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
- An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
- An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
- An ability to communicate effectively
- The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions to a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
- A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
- A knowledge of contemporary issues
- An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
These objectives and outcomes were reviewed and endorsed by the Advisory Board for Mechanical Engineering and the College of Engineering Mathematics and Science at UW-Platteville at the Spring meeting on March 14, 2014.
