Student Learning Outcomes

In support of the Program Educational Objectives, the MET program has adopted the student outcomes which relate more or less directly on a one to one basis with the ABET (a-k) student outcomes. The MET program outcomes are listed below.

Each student successfully completing the requirements for a Degree in the Mechanical Engineering Technology program is expected to have:

  1. an appropriate mastery of the knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of their discipline
  2. an ability to apply current knowledge and adapt to emerging applications of mathematics, science, engineering and technology
  3. an ability to conduct, analyze and interpret experiments and apply experimental results to improve processes
  4. an ability to apply creativity in the design of systems, components or processes appropriate to their objectives
  5. an ability to function effectively in teams
  6. an ability to identify, analyze and solve technical problems
  7. an ability to communicate effectively
  8. a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in lifelong learning
  9. an ability to understand professional, ethical and social responsibilities
  10. a respect for diversity and a knowledge of contemporary professional, societal and global issues
  11. a commitment to quality, timeliness and continuous improvement

As students take the various courses that are part of the MET program of study, they will see course syllabi that list a subset of the student outcomes listed above. Each course contributes to some of the student outcomes. Collectively, the courses assure that MET students achieve all of the student outcomes.
