Program Educational Objectives

Definition (ABET): Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few (three to five) years after graduation. Program educational objectives are based on the needs of the program’s constituencies. Our constituencies include our students, the employers who hire those who enter the workforce, and the faculty with whom those who pursue advanced degrees do graduate work, among others.

MS&E's Program Educational Objectives are:


Objective 1: Skills and Tools. Graduates will be applying the tools and skills acquired during their undergraduate experience either in post-graduate educational programs or as employees in materials-related industries.


Objective 2: Early Career Growth. Graduates will have experienced professional growth in their chosen post-baccalaureate pursuits, for example, through acquisition of advanced degrees or advancement in employment rank.


Objective 3: Professional Citizenship. Graduates will have demonstrated awareness of contemporary issues in technology and society and ethical responsibility.


Objective 4: Life-Long Learning: Graduates will have demonstrated a continuing commitment to learning.
