Accreditation

Both the aerospace engineering BS degree and the mechanical engineering BS degree are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Mechanical Engineering, BS

Program Educational Objectives

The Mechanical Engineering BS Program at UB is accredited by ABET, which requires a formal Outcomes Assessment and Continuous Improvement process to insure educational excellence. The Program Educational Objectives for the ME program are:

  • Graduates will hold a position in mechanical engineering or other professional careers or will be engaged in advanced study
  • Graduates will serve their profession and their community by participation in professional and community groups
  • Graduates will use the unique problem-solving skills from their engineering training to make a significant, informed impact on current and future societal challenges

Student Outcomes

The Mechanical Engineering Program has selected the following Program Outcomes and regularly evaluates course content to ensure that they are being met:

  • an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  • an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • 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
  • an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  • an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • an ability to communicate effectively
  • the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
  • a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  • a knowledge of contemporary issues
  • an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
