Mechanical Engineering Technology Program Outcomes
To effectively prepare the next generation of Mechanical Engineering Technologists, the department faculty used input from various constituencies along with ABET’s TAC Criterion 2 to develop the following Program Outcomes for NMU’s MET program.
- Students will be proficient in mechanical design and analysis, including theory, software applications, test and analysis tools, and use of basic mechanical and electronic measurement/testing equipment.
- Students will apply basic math, science, and communication skills to engineering applications, while adapting to rapidly changing technology.
- Students will demonstrate the ability to enhance a system or process by evaluating experimental data results.
- Students will apply knowledge and analytic skills to effectively identify and analyze engineering problems from multiple perspectives, assess proposed solution viability, and anticipate overall impact of proposed resolutions.
- Students will demonstrate leadership and solidarity in a team environment.
- Students will exhibit the ability to identify, analyze and solve technical mechanical system challenges.
- Students will demonstrate the ability to effectively communicate to multiple audiences through a variety of venues, including verbal, written, graphical, and kinesthetic modes.
- Students will recognize multiple opportunities to engage in lifelong learning.
- Students will understand the ethical and professional responsibilities in the engineering field.
- Students will establish a respect for and an understanding of diversity and social/global issues.
- Students will focus on high-quality work, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
- Students will be able to apply learned engineering principles to the analysis, design, development, and implementation of advanced mechanical systems.
- Student will demonstrate a strong basis in engineering mechanics.
