Mechanical Engineering - Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes

Program Educational Objectives

The program educational objectives of SUNY Poly’s Mechanical Engineering program are to produce graduates who, within a few years of graduation,

  • Have become successful professionals with strong individual competence and capable of working in and leading teams, designing and analyzing devices and/or systems,

  • Have developed  and are applying their broad knowledge, critical thinking skills, and professional skills to applications and studies, in engineering and multi-disciplinary projects for the betterment of their companies and communities,

  • Have developed and are applying their understanding of the impact of technology and professional ethical and social responsibilities to benefit the health, safety, and welfare of the public,

  • Have been engaging in life-long learning and continued technical and professional growth. 

Student Outcomes

The Student Outcomes for the Mechanical Engineering Program are identical to the ABET Student Outcomes, which prepare graduates to attain the program educational objectives. They are listed as follows:

  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
