Learning Outcomes and Educational Objectives

ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY and MECHANICAL ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

The educational objectives of the UMass Lowell EET and MET programs are for graduate students that will:

  1. Pursue successful careers, in EET and MET engineering or related fields, that sustain or improve socio-economic levels for themselves, and their families while enhancing personal fulfillment.  
  2. Engage in continuing education and development in their professional field.  
  3. Engage in service activities, related to their profession, that benefit society and the community.  
  4. Continually evaluate their professional actions in light of their personal and professional ethics.  
  5. Apply the principles of sustainable engineering in their professional careers.

EET AND MET COMMON STUDENT OUTCOMES

For the UMass Lowell baccalaureate degree programs, the student outcomes are the following learned capabilities:

  1. an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline 
  2. an ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline; 
  3. an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature 
  4. an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes 
  5. an ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams. 

Broadly defined activities are those that involve a variety of resources; that involve the use of new processes, materials, or techniques in innovative ways; and that require a knowledge of standard operating procedures.
