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 continual learning.

Each graduate is expected to have:

1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.

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. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.

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. 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. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.

7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
