Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes

ABET

The B.S.E. Interdisciplinary Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,  http://www.abet.org.


Program Educational Objectives:

Graduates of the Interdisciplinary Engineering program are expected within a few years of graduation to:

  • Demonstrate technical competency in their careers
  • Function effectively in an industrial or academic environment
  • Engage in professional development
  • Shape their professions and societies

Feedback regarding the Interdisciplinary Engineering program educational objectives is received from four primary constituencies:

  • Students enrolled in the program;
  • The employer base for the graduates and cooperative education students;
  • The alumni of the program; and,
  • The engineering faculty and administration

In addition to the four primary constituencies, the following external stakeholders are heavily involved in the success of the School of Engineering programs.

  • The West Michigan community, in which the majority of our co-op students and graduates practice and contribute both professionally and personally;
  • The State of Michigan

 

Student Outcomes:

The graduate will know and demonstrate:

  1. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering,
  2. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data,
  3. an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs,
  4. an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams,
  5. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems,
  6. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility,
  7. an ability to communicate effectively,
  8. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global and societal context,
  9. a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning,
  10. a knowledge of contemporary issues, and
  11. an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
