Student Outcomes

An Ohio University Mechanical Engineering graduate will demonstrate:

  1. [ASME/ABET-a] an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering, (including multivariate calculus and differential equations); to model, analyze, design, and realize physical systems, components or processes; and work professionally in either thermal or mechanical systems 
  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 multi-disciplinary 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.
