Student Outcomes

The Department of Mechanical Engineering has adopted the ABET Outcomes as its Program Outcomes. These are what our graduates acquire upon completing the Cal State LA Mechanical Engineering Bachelor of Science and Master of Science Programs.

BSME Program Student Outcomes

  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

MSME Program Student Outcomes

  1. Ability to acquire and apply new knowledge
  2. Ability to perform in-depth analysis, experimentation, and design to solve contemporary mechanical engineering problems
  3. Ability to effectively communicate, both verbally and in written form, to a broad range of audiences in an ethically and professionally responsible manner
