Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering - ABET Accredited Program

Mission

The Mechanical Engineering Program strives to graduate mechanical engineers who understand the ethical, social, economic, and environmental context of their profession and who apply their knowledge with judgment and responsibility to develop ways to utilize the materials and forces of nature for the benefit of mankind. The program prepares students to either immediately enter professional practice upon graduation or to pursue graduate studies, without neglecting the requirements for a fruitful life by emphasizing the University’s model of liberal arts education. The curriculum of the program shares three basic tenants: scientific and technological excellence, balance between theory and practice, and a commitment to self-maintained, and enduring personal and professional development. The results are mechanical engineers naturally inclined to life-long learning and problem solvers ready to deal with any technological challenge at local, regional, and/or international scales.

Program Educational Objectives

  1. 1.Practice professionally in local, regional, and international work environments by appropriately applying mechanical engineering fundamentals and by using state-of-the-art tools within the broad range of the mechanical engineering profession;
  2. 2.Advance in their careers as positive influencers in a diversified environment while showing ethical commitment to society and sustainability; and
  3. 3.Engage in continuing professional development and quality research activities by either continually learning and improving or pursuing graduate studies.

Program Learning Outcomes (based on ABET criteria)

The graduates of the Mechanical Engineering program will have:

  1. 1.An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics;
  2. 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. 3.An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences;
  4. 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. 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. 6.An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions;
  7. 7.An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Graduation Requirements

To receive a degree of Bachelor of Engineering offered by the Faculty of Engineering, a student must complete a total of 150 credits with an overall GPA of at least 2.0/4.0 and a minimum average of 2.0/4.0 in the major requirements and technical electives.
