Bachelor of Science in Engineering, Product Design & Manufacturing Engineering

Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes

ABET

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


Program Educational Objectives:

Graduates of the Product Design and Manufacturing 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 Product Design and Manufacturing 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 identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
