Program Educational Objectives

Graduates of the ESG program will:

  • Meet or exceed expectations of employers in engineering or science-related disciplines or pursue advanced studies if so desired.
  • Assume/undertake leadership roles in their communities and/or professions

Student Outcomes

Students who graduate from the ESG program should possess the following skill sets to prepare them to enter the professional practice of engineering:  

1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

In addition to preparation for graduate study in engineering and materials science, the program in Engineering Science prepares students for a variety of employment opportunities as it is particularly suited to the nature of modern manufacturing processes in industry as well as to scientific institutions and laboratories. Throughout the curriculum, students develop skills needed to participate in the research experience and are encouraged to become involved in the many state-of-the-art research facilities associated with the Department, including world-class laboratories in polymer engineering, thermal spray research, surface science and engineering, nanotechnology, semiconductor materials and crystal growth, and environmental materials engineering. Graduates of the program, trained to understand the materials and forces of nature and to apply that knowledge to practical problem solving, occupy engineering, scientific, and management positions in development, manufacturing, and marketing in major corporations in areas including communications, computing, and aerospace. Small and medium-sized companies also rely on the expertise of materials scientists in design and manufacturing.
In addition, some graduates apply their knowledge to patent law and consulting. About ten percent of the program’s graduates pursue advanced degrees in engineering research as well as in law, business, and medicine.

The program in Engineering Science is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,
