Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes

Graduates of this program are mechanical engineering technologists, prepared for multiple positions within mechanical and manufacturing companies, including but not limited to: manufacturing engineer, design engineer, mechanical designer, test engineer, sales engineer; plus, a range of positions that demand technical engineering skills. General education requirements in the areas of communication, social science, natural science and humanities provide analytical and communication skills as well as a global perspective of diverse cultures.

Program Educational Objectives:

In order to meet the needs of the program’s constituents, and to foster student success in the career fields outlined above, Globe University has developed the following Program Educational Objectives for B.S. Mechanical Engineering Technology graduates:

  1. Identify, create and evaluate solutions to complex engineering-related problems in a timely and professional manner utilizing the skills developed in the areas of design, manufacturing and mechanics.
  2. Solve technical problems while considering the local, national and global requirements and impact of the solution.
  3. Successfully function as a team member and leader.

Student Outcomes:

  1. Demonstrate an appropriate mastery of the knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools related to mechanical engineering technology.
  2. Apply current knowledge and adapt to emerging applications of mathematics, science, engineering and technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies.
  3. Conduct standard tests and measurements; conduct, analyze and interpret experiments; and apply experimental results to improve processes.
  4. Apply creativity in the design of systems, components or processes for broadly defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives.
  5. Function effectively on teams.
  6. Identify, analyze and solve broadly defined engineering technology problems.
  7. Demonstrate an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development.
  8. Demonstrate a commitment to quality, timeliness and continual improvement.
  9. Demonstrate appropriate* written and verbal communication skills. (*Appropriate” for students in the Mechanical Engineering Technology program includes both technical and non-technical as well as graphical communication forms and technical literature).
  10. Evaluate the quality of multiple viewpoints, arguments and evidence, and distinguish between fact and opinion.
  11. Exhibit social responsibility, and examine the diverse cultures and value systems of our global community.
