Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes*

The program educational objectives of the Carroll College Engineering Science program are to prepare graduates who will:

  1. Find employment in their chosen fields and enjoy successful and rewarding professional careers.
  2. Seek and engage in lifelong learning to grow and develop in their chosen professions and/or continue their education to earn a master's or a doctoral degree.
  3. Demonstrate leadership, especially through good teamwork and effective communication skills.
  4. Conduct themselves as ethical and responsible professionals, always mindful of the safety, environmental, economic, public health, and aesthetic impacts of their work.

* A revision to the second PEO was approved by the Engineering Advisory Board on September 22, 2017. The PEOs above are the revised version, which differ from the version of the PEOs as published in the 2017-2018 Carroll College Catalog.

Periodically, the Program Educational Objectives for the Engineering Science Program are reviewed by faculty and other constituents of the Program. If modifications are proposed for the PEOs during reviews, all constituents (including, but not limited to: program or other affected faculty; the Carroll College Engineering Advisory Board; and current Engineering Science Program students) will be afforded opportunities to review the proposed changes and allowed to make comments and suggestions related to the proposed changes. Final versions of any modifications to the PEOs will include consideration of any and all comments and suggestions made by all Program constituents.  

The student outcomes associated with these educational objectives include:

  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 within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
  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, 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.

1 Head counts for first year students can be misleading as the students may be declared as civil engineering, engineering science, or 3-2 engineering and yet matriculate as engineering science majors.
2 This value includes 4th and 5th year students. Office of Institutional Effectiveness was unable to separate the data.
