MS&E’s Student Outcomes are:

Outcome A:

Students shall be able to apply knowledge of mathematics, chemistry, physics, and materials science and engineering principles to materials and materials systems [corresponds with ABET 3a and Materials program criteria].

Outcome B:

Students shall be able to design and conduct experiments to study the microstructure, properties, processing and performance of materials and to analyze and interpret the experimental results [corresponds with ABET 3b and Materials program criteria].

Outcome C:

Students shall be able to design materials and processes to produce them to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability and/or sustainability [corresponds with ABET 3c].

Outcome D:

Students shall be able to work in multi-disciplinary teams and provide leadership on materials related problems that arise in multi-disciplinary work [corresponds with ABET 3d and Materials program criteria].

Outcome E:

Students shall be able to identify materials-related problems and formulate plans to solve such problems [corresponds with ABET 3e Materials program criteria].

Outcome F:

Students shall have an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility [corresponds with ABET 3f].

Outcome G:

Students shall be able to communicate materials concepts effectively through written reports, oral presentations, and discussion [corresponds with ABET 3g and Materials program criteria].

Outcome H:

Students shall have the broad education necessary to understand the impact of materials science and engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context [corresponds with ABET 3h Materials program criteria].

Outcome I:

Students shall have the materials science and engineering foundation needed to succeed in materials science and engineering graduate programs, to pursue other forms of continuing education in materials science and engineering, and to engage in life-long learning of materials science and engineering [corresponds with ABET 3i and Materials program criteria].
