Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering


Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Program accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

Program Educational Objectives

The Midwestern State University mechanical engineering graduates will:

  1. Display a high level of engineering knowledge and expertise; consequently, will be competitive with their peers in local and global markets;
  2. Exhibit critical thinking skills necessary to practice engineering design and analysis in a disciplined process;
  3. Function at a high level of responsibility, individually and in teams, while exhibiting excellent oral, written, and visual communication skills;
  4. Possess the skills and knowledge to pursue advanced studies and/or assume leadership roles along diverse career paths; and
  5. Demonstrate a strong appreciation for and commitment to ethical, societal, environmental, and professional responsibilities.

Student Outcomes

The outcomes of the mechanical engineering program include those established by ABET.  Upon completion of the baccalaureate degree in mechanical engineering, each graduate will have:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying the 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 judgements, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts;
  5. an ability 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 judgement to draw conclusions;
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
