    • Student Outcome
      Eastern Michigan University's B.S. in Mechanical Engineering Technology
      program will provide graduates with the knowledge and skills needed to
      achieve the program's objectives after graduation.
      MET graduates will demonstrate their skills in the following areas:
      • An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of
      mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-
      defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline.
      • An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting
      specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate
      to the discipline.
      • An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in
      broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an
      ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature.
      • An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments
      and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes.
      • An ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on
      technical teams.
