Student Learning Objectives: Mechanical, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering


The MIME graduate program aims to provide students with an outstanding academic and research experience in the department focus areas. Research topics are at the leading edge of the technology or science in the respective areas and typically supported by industry or government institutions. Students must demonstrate proficiency in one of the two areas of thermal science or solid mechanics. A third area of research focus is also available to students interested in research on advanced manufacturing processes, which could integrate portions of the other two areas. Each focus area course program and proficiency requirements are defined and evaluated by the faculty in the area. Our students must achieve the following outcomes: 

  1. Ability to demonstrate technical proficiency in their focus areas
  2. Ability to solve problems using mathematics and engineering knowledge in one of the ME specialty areas
  3. Ability to conduct a literature review
  4. Ability to explain course projects I one of the ME specialty areas clearly and concisely in written and oral formats
  5. Ability to explain their research clearly and concisely I written and oral formats (for students pursuing a thesis or dissertation option)
  6. Ability to generate high-quality engineering research (for students pursuing a thesis or dissertation option)
