Enrollment and Graduation Data

Engineering Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

The Engineering Program Educational Objectives are:
  • To prepare graduates to practice engineering and to be successful in solving the engineering problems encountered in industry, government, or private practice.
  • To provide graduates with the motivation and skills to advance into positions of increased responsibility and to pursue continuing education or graduate studies
  • To produce graduates who are not only ethical and professional as engineers but also are responsible members of their communities and the larger society.

Engineering Program Student Outcomes (SO)

At the time of completion of the Engineering Program at McNeese State University, graduates will posess all of the following:
  • 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
  • An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
