MET Objectives and Outcomes

Program Educational Objectives

The MET program will produce graduates with knowledge, hands-on skills, problem-solving, mechanical and leadership skills to enter careers in the design, installation, manufacturing, testing, evaluation, technical sales, maintenance, process and system design. These graduates will:

PEO1. Attain a gainful employment in technical or leadership careers the Mechanical, Electronics and Controls and/or Manufacturing disciplines.

PEO2. Work effectively in cross functional teams and communicate effectively in oral, written or visual forms.

PEO3. Attain an awareness of ethical, professional, and social responsibilities in their professional lives and community services.

PEO4. Attain skills necessary to engage in self-directed continuing professional development.


Student Outcomes:
