Master of Science in Engineering

Learning Outcomes

 
 

Learning outcomes for the MSE program will align with and elevate those of the undergraduate engineering program that were developed to meet ABET accreditation standards, as well as prepare students to be successful in the pursuit of, or maintaining, professional engineering licensure.  The MSE program will also prepare students to continue graduate studies at the doctoral level.

 

Content/Discipline Knowledge and Skills

MSE graduates will be able to:

  1. Apply higher level math, science and engineering skills to research      and/or design engineering systems, components, or processes to      meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic,      environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety,      manufacturability, and sustainability.
  2. Understand the professional and ethical responsibilities associated      with engineering practice and engineering research.
  3. Use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary      for engineering practice and engineering research.

 

Content/discipline knowledge and skills are assessed at the program level using appropriate coursework including examinations, assignments and presentations.

 

Communication Skills

MSE graduates will be able to:

  1. Organize and relate ideas coherently in written, oral, and graphic      form.
  2. Develop and present consistent arguments to diverse audiences.

Communication skills are assessed at the University, College, and Program levels through oral and written presentations, project reports, and other assignments throughout the curriculum.

 

Critical Thinking Skills

MSE graduates will be able to:

  1. Identify problems and the relevant information needed to solve      them.
  2. Analyze and synthesize information, and draw reasoned inferences.
  3. Formulate and evaluate appropriate problem-solving strategies.

Critical thinking skills are assessed at the University, College, and Program levels through oral and written presentations, project reports, exams, and other assignments throughout the curriculum.
