Program Education Objectives

Program Educational Objectives (PEO) describe the attributes that we aspire for our graduates to possess three to five years after graduation. The BS degree program in Mechanical Engineering Technology will prepare graduates with the technical and managerial skills necessary to enter careers in analysis, applied design, development, implementation or oversight of advanced mechanical systems and processes.

  • PEO1. Graduates will be gainfully employed in careers where they will continue to build upon their technical knowledge, using modern tools for the design, and improvement of products, processes and new technologies.
  • PEO2. Graduates will be effective in working in teams of diverse professionals of varied technical or business positions.
  • PEO3. Graduates will be able to effectively communicate in written and oral formats.
  • PEO4. Graduates will engage in lifelong learning activities with a commitment to continuous improvement in their professional and personal lives.
  • PEO5. Graduates will exercise an understanding of ethical and social responsibilities in their professional lives and community service.

Student Outcomes

The MET Student Outcomes (SO) capture the desired attributes that the MET program at the School of Engineering Technology aspires to impart to its students through the curriculum and academic experience.

  • An ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of their disciplines to broadly-defined engineering technology activities.
  • An ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies.
