As a graduate of this program you will have learned how to do the following:

  1. Design mechanical components to meet performance requirements by: establishing performance requirements, selecting a concept to pursue, iterating to the final design, and documenting the process and the results.
  2. Plan and design mechanical systems and their controls by: establishing performance requirements, designing system to meet performance requirements, selecting the concept to pursue, selecting components, integrating system components, and making the system work.
  3. Use computers as an engineering tool by: using a computer and its operating system, using office applications, using engineering applications, writing application programs, and given an engineering problem, solving and validating it using a computer application.
  4. Enhance the quality of production by applying accepted quality improvement principles by: qualifying components using metrology, monitoring a process using SPC, interpreting GD&T, identifying variables contributing to performance, and defining goals and methods of quality improvement.
  5. Design, plan, and control manufacturing environments for the efficient production of component parts and assemblies by: planning and laying out facilities; given related data, selecting workable manufacturing processes and planning production; planning and controlling production; designing production tooling; demonstrating process capabilities of machine operation by production prototypes; and demonstrating proficiency in machine operation.
  6. Function effectively in various roles at all stages and all types of communication by: writing a report in the correct format to the industry standard technical level, demonstrating listening and speaking skills, and meeting audience needs.
  7. Behave ethically and responsibly by: recognizing and respecting the tradesperson, demonstrating self-initiated learning, and applying a code of ethics.
  8. Participate at various levels within the mechanical/manufacturing business environment by: performing TVM calculations, identifying optimal choices between engineering alternatives, identifying the functions of management, preparing a manufacturing budget, and performing variance analysis.
