Graduates from the Mechanical Engineering undergraduate program will choose to use the knowledge and skills they have acquired during their undergraduate years to pursue a wide variety of career and life goals.  We encourage this diversity of paths.

Independent of whether our graduates choose to pursue a professional career, postgraduate education, or volunteer service in engineering or a different field; we expect that our graduates will achieve the following objectives within three to five years after graduation:

    1. They will exhibit a fundamental understanding of broader engineering disciplines with strong skills in mechanical engineering, problem solving, leadership, teamwork, and communication.

    2. They will use these skills to contribute to their organizations and communities.

    3. They will make thoughtful, well-informed decisions in their career and life.

    4. They will demonstrate a continuing commitment to and interest in their own and other's education.
