Student Outcomes

To expect all BSME graduates to have:

  • 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 in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context;
  • a recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in life-long learning;
  • knowledge of contemporary issues;
  • an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice;
  • an ability to work professionally in thermal systems area;
  • an ability to work professionally in the mechanical systems area;
  • an ability to apply the principles of engineering, basic science and mathematics (including multivariate calculus and differential equations) to model, analyze, design and realize physical systems, components or processes; and
  • an ability to secure professional job placement or entrance into a post-graduate academic program before graduation, if so desired.
