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:

a. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering;
b. an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data;
c. 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;
d. an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams;
e. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems;
f. an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility;
g. an ability to communicate effectively;
h. the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context;
i. a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in, life long learning;
j. a knowledge of contemporary issues; and
k. an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

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,  http://www.abet.org
