Objectives and Outcomes

The mission of the Mechanical Engineering Department is to produce mechanical engineering graduates who possess the acumen, competence, and skills needed to enter, succeed, and lead in professional practice and/or graduate school. The goal is to provide a learning and nurturing environment that stimulates faculty and students to collaborate in solving practical problems, motivates life-long learning, and helps them reach their highest potential.

Mechanical Engineering Program Objectives

The objectives of the department are that every student within 3 to 5 years after graduation of the mechanical engineering program will be prepared:

  1. To enter professional practice, or pursue advanced studies.
  2. To succeed in local, regional, national and international practice.
  3. For lifelong learning
  4. For satisfaction in the educational investment
  5. To pursue opportunities in mechanical engineering.
  6. To meet global technological and societal changing needs.
  7. To interact globally with engineering technology
