Engineering Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes

Engineering Enrollment and Graduation Data

Program Educational Objectives

Graduates of the Southern Utah University Engineering Program will be considered successful if after four years from their graduation they:

  1. Are employed in the engineering profession or are engaged in further education or work in another field that makes use of the fundamentals of mathematics, physical science, and engineering science.
  2. Have become or are aspiring to become licensed professional engineers if engaged in an engineering profession where it is needed.
  3. Demonstrate commitment to professionalism, ethical responsibility and a concern for society and the environment, such as by active participation in professional societies or similar organizations fostering continued professional and personal development and service.

Student Learning Outcomes

The outcomes of the Engineering program are those proposed by the
Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Each graduate
will 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;
  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 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.
