Mechanical Engineering Program Educational Objectives

The educational objectives of the Penn State Behrend Mechanical Engineering Program are to produce graduates who, within three years of graduation, are able to:

A. be employed as a practicing engineer in fields such as design, research, development, testing, and manufacturing;

B. assume positions of leadership and responsibility within an organization; and

C. progress through advanced degree or certificate programs in engineering, business, and other professionally related fields.

Mechanical Engineering Outcomes

(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

(k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice

(l) an ability to work professionally in both thermal and mechanical systems areas

According to ABET, “Program Educational Objectives are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the program is preparing graduate to achieve. Student Outcomes are narrower statements that describe what students are to know and be able to do by the time of graduation.”
