MMET Objectives and Outcomes

Program Educational Objectives:

Produce graduates with knowledge, hands-on skills, problem-solving, technical 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 where they continue to enhance their knowledge in the Mechanical and/or Manufacturing disciplines.   

PEO2.    Attain an ability to 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 lifelong learning activities coupled with commitment to continuous improvement in their professional lives.
