Accreditation

Mechanical & Industrial Engineering Department

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) and the Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering (BSIE) are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Program Educational Objectives for the BSME Program

The BSME program will produce mechanical engineering graduates who are able to:

1. Solve mechanical engineering problems by applying contemporary engineering tools to propose and implement effective solutions.

2. Design, develop, implement and improve thermal and mechanical systems.

3. Contribute as informed, ethical, and responsible members of the engineering profession and society as a whole.

4. Continue lifelong professional development throughout their careers.

5. Collaborate and communicate effectively with others as a member or leader of an engineering or multidisciplinary team in an international setting.

Student Outcomes for the BSME Program

Mechanical engineering graduates from the University of Minnesota Duluth will have:

a. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering appropriate to a mechanical engineer;

b. An ability to design and conduct experiments, analyze and interpret data, and report findings;

c. An ability to design and realize both thermal and mechanical systems;

d. An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams;

e. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve mechanical engineering problems;

f. An understanding of the professional and ethical responsibilities of a mechanical engineer;

g. An ability to communicate effectively, including oral, written, and visual forms;

h. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of mechanical engineering solutions in a global and societal context;

i. A recognition of the need for, and the ability to engage in life-long learning;

j. A knowledge of contemporary mechanical engineering issues;

k. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for mechanical engineering practice.

 

Program Educational Objectives for the BSIE Program

The BSIE program will produce industrial engineering graduates who are able to:
