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.
  1. Students will be proficient in mechanical design and analysis, including theory and software applications, along with application of appropriate tools of the discipline.

  2. Students will be able to apply basic math, science, and communication skills to engineering applications.

  3. Students will have the ability to enhance a system or process by measuring and evaluating experimental data.

  4. Students will have an ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives.

  5. Students will have good teamwork skills in a technical environment.

  6. Students will have the ability to identify, analyze and solve technical mechanical system challenges.

  7. Students will have the ability to effectively communicate to multiple audiences through a variety of venues, including verbal, written, and graphical modes.  Students will also be able to identify and use technical literature.

  8. Students will understand the need for continued professional development.

  9. Students will understand the ethical and professional responsibilities in the engineering field.

  10. Students will have an understanding of how technology can impact society as a whole.

  11. Students will have a commitment to high-quality work, timeliness, and continuous improvement.

  12. Students will be able to apply learned engineering principles to the analysis, design, development, and implementation of advanced mechanical systems.

  13. Student will have a strong basis in engineering mechanics.

  14. Students will be able to apply effective application of project management techniques to mechanical systems.
