MFGE - Mission, Objectives, Outcomes

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:

  1. Perform as technical leaders in the global marketplace.
  2. Analyze, design, develop, optimize, implement, and evaluate complex manufacturing systems and processes in the context of modern interdisciplinary engineering work.
  3. Contribute to the profitable growth of manufacturing businesses.
  4. Maintain high standards of professional and ethical responsibility.
  5. Practice life-long learning.

Each graduate is expected to have:

  1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
  2. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  3. 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.
  4. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
  5. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  6. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  7. An ability to communicate effectively.
  8. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  9. A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
  10. A knowledge of contemporary issues.
  11. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
