In support of the University and College, the mission of the Bachelor of Science in Materials Science and Engineering Program is to provide the highest quality engineering education through cooperative efforts with regional industry. Our program will develop and disseminate methods of design, analysis, and implementation of the principles and practices particular to materials science and engineering. The education provided to our students will make them highly proficient in their role as materials scientists and engineers, and our graduates will have an awareness of how that role can impact society from an ethical, environmental, economic, and safety perspective. The students in our program will develop the skills necessary to engage in life-long learning and pursue their personal and professional development upon completing the program.

To achieve our mission, a set of Program Educational Objectives has been established. These objectives are based on input from the primary stakeholders of the program, which includes alumni, students, faculty, and the department’s Industrial Advisory Board. The Program Educational Objectives are statements that describe the anticipated accomplishments of graduates during the initial years following graduation.

Our graduates will:

  • Achieve professional success in materials science and engineering careers or related fields.
  • Lead by example and/or advance to leadership roles within their profession and community.
  • Be prepared for successful pursuit of lifelong learning throughout their postgraduate career.
  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.
