Survey of Educational Objective for Mechanical Engineering Program

Dear ME Alumnus/Alumna:

Every few years, SFSU's School of Engineering, like almost every engineering program in the country, must be reaccredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). One of the things we have to do as part of the accreditation process is to ascertain whether the educational objectives for the Mechanical Engineering Program are acceptable to all our "stakeholders", including our current students and our alumni.

Our Mechanical Engineering program has proposed two educational objectives, which are listed below. These educational objectives are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the program is preparing our graduates to achieve after they leave our program and join the engineering profession.

We would like to solicit your comments before these are finalized. How well do you agree that the statements below answer the general question: "what should we be preparing our graduates to achieve in the 'real world'?"

Thanks a lot for your help with this!

Proposed Educational Objectives for the Mechanical Engineering Program

  1. Mechanical Engineering graduates will be in professional positions where they will use their skills in
    analysis, design, communication, and teamwork to perform well.
  2. Mechanical Engineering graduates will engage life-long learning and the continued development of
    professional skills required for career advancement.
