Mechanical Engineering ABET Accreditation
Our Mechanical Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET under the General Criteria and the Program Criteria for Mechanical and Similarly Named Engineering Programs.
The requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering include 30-39 hours of general education requirements, 34-38 hours of Mathematics and Science, and 9 hours of Business, for a minimum total of 130-134 hours for the degree.
Program educational objectives
The engineering programs have established the following expectations for the accomplishments of our graduates in the first several years following graduation:
- Our graduates will apply their engineering knowledge and problem-solving skills in related professional fields.
- Our graduates will function as team members who think critically, communicate effectively, and demonstrate initiative and self-motivation.
- Our graduates will be actively involved in their profession and engaged in lifelong learning activities in mechanical engineering or related fields.
- Our graduates will exhibit high levels of professionalism and professional ethics.
Upon graduation, B.S.M.E. students are expected to have the ability to:
- Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- 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.
- Communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- 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.
- Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
- Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
