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.

Student Outcomes:

By the time of graduation, students in the MMET program will provide:

SO1 [1]An ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of mathematics, science, mechanical and manufacturing engineering technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems in the design, manufacturing, facility planning, materials handling, robotics, and maintenance of mechanical and manufacturing systems;

SO2 [2] An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems relating to, materials, manufacturing processes, tooling, automation, production operations, maintenance, quality, industrial organization, mechanical design, tool design and machine design;

SO3 [3] An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, experiments, and optimization in engineering materials, statics, dynamics, fluid power, and electronics and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes;

SO4 [4] An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;

SO5 [5] An ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team.
