Our mission is:
- To sustain a quality, student-centered, industry-oriented engineering curriculum.
- To attract students and prepare them with the knowledge, practical skills, and abilities to perform as highly competent engineers in the global marketplace and/or in graduate studies.
- To produce graduates skilled in materials and manufacturing processes: process, assembly and product engineering; manufacturing competitiveness and systems design.
Within 3-5 years after graduation, graduates of the Manufacturing Engineering program are expected to be able to attain the following educational objectives:
- Perform as technical leaders in the global marketplace.
- Understand and apply the principles of math, science, and engineering in design and manufacturing related activities.
- Contribute to the profitable growth of manufacturing businesses.
- Maintain high standards of professional and ethical responsibility.
- Practice life-long learning.
Each graduate is expected to have:
- An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
- An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
- An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
- An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
- An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
- An ability to communicate effectively.
- The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
- A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
- A knowledge of contemporary issues.
- An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
