MFGE - Mission, Objectives, Outcomes
Manufacturing Engineering Program's Mission is:
- To sustain a quality, student-centered, industry-oriented engineering curriculum.
- To attract students and prepare them with the knowledge, practical skills, and abilities to perform as highly competent engineers in the global marketplace and/or in graduate studies.
- To produce graduates skilled in materials and manufacturing processes: process, assembly and product engineering; manufacturing competitiveness and systems design.
Manufacturing Engineering Program's Educational Objectives (PEOs):
Within 3-5 years after graduation, graduates of the Manufacturing Engineering program are expected to be able to attain the following educational objectives:
- Perform as technical leaders in the global marketplace.
- Analyze, design, develop, optimize, implement, and evaluate complex manufacturing systems and processes in the context of modern interdisciplinary engineering work.
- Contribute to the profitable growth of manufacturing businesses.
- Maintain high standards of professional and ethical responsibility.
- Practice continual learning.
Manufacturing Engineering Program's Student Outcomes (SOs):
- 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, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
- 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.
