Accreditation/ABET

The aerospace engineering and mechanical engineering undergraduate programs are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org

Aerospace Engineering Program Educational Objectives

The program educational objectives of the aerospace engineering undergraduate program are to ensure that within a few years of graduation:

  • Graduates will meet the expectations of employers of aerospace engineers.
  • Qualified graduates will pursue advanced study if they so desire.

Aerospace Engineering Student Outcomes

The faculty have adopted the engineering criteria (a) – (k) student outcomes, namely:

(a)  an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
(b)  an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
(c)   an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
(d)  an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
(e)  an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
(f)   an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
(g)  an ability to communicate effectively
(h)  the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
(i)    a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
(j)   a knowledge of contemporary issues
(k)  an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

Mechanical Engineering Program Educational Objectives

The program educational objectives of the mechanical engineering undergraduate program are to ensure that within a few years of graduation:
