Product Design Engineering Technology

The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) of the Product Design Engineering Technology (PDET) program at CMU describe the expected accomplishments of the SET-PDET graduates during their first few years after graduation.

The main goal of the PDET program at CMU is to provide a competitive curriculum and learning environmental that prepare graduates who will be able to:

  • PEO 1:  Attain employment and practice successfully in a product design engineering technology related profession
  • PEO 2: Work in multi-disciplinary teams providing technical knowledge and effective communication as engineering technologists
  • PEO 3: Remain technically current through continuous learning and self-improvement
  • PEO 4: Understand and exhibit professional, ethical and social responsibility as they pursue their careers

Student Outcomes

Upon graduation from the Product Design Engineering Technology program, the students will have:

  • An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline
  • An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline
  • An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature
  • An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes
  • An ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams
