Objectives and Outcomes
Program educational objectives
The Engineering Physics program provides our graduates with a quality undergraduate education in liberal studies, mathematics, science and engineering to prepare them to within a few years after graduation:
- Attain positions as professionals in industry, government, or academia.
- Become responsible, accountable, current professionals who work effectively in multidisciplinary teams, readily adapt to broad technical challenges, and demonstrate leadership.
By graduation, students in our program are expected to attain the following student outcomes:
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- 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
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- 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
- an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership
- an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
