Undergraduate StudyABET Outcomes
The Accrediting Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) has established voluntary educational standards for postsecondary programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology.
McCormick has adopted these standards for its undergraduate engineering programs. The outcomes ABET requires for engineering programs are as follows.
Engineering programs must demonstrate that their students attain:
- 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 within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
- an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
- an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
- an ability to communicate effectively
- the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
- a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
- a knowledge of contemporary issues, and
- an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
A course-by-course breakdown, subdivided by department, of how McCormick’s individual course offerings fulfill ABET’s outcome requirements for engineering students.
ABET’s curriculum requirements for engineering mandate that courses fulfill one of three categories:
- Mathematics and Basic Science
- Engineering Topics
- General Education
The course partitioning page shows which ABET curriculum requirements are met by McCormick’s course offerings.
