Program Educational Objectives
Our alumni will show evidence of integrating a Christian worldview into their life and vocation by following the example of Christ in being an articulate, ethical and empowered servant leader. This implies being aware of and meeting the needs of humanity by doing most if not all of the following:
- serving community and faith based organizations,
- serving professional societies,
- and serving employers by being a steward of time, competencies and resources.
Our alumni will show competence to apply fundamental engineering concepts in a professional setting by active participation in professional engineering activities. These activities will involve some of the following: creating, researching, innovating, designing, building, testing, inspecting, evaluating, estimating, planning, allocating, forecasting, selling, educating, communicating and collaborating.
Our alumni will continue to develop professionally through involvement in post-graduate learning activities. These activities would include participating in training or continued education, receiving a post graduate degree, attending and or delivering presentations, papers or posters at professional conferences, taking and passing the EIT and PE exam, and/or attending or delivering presentations at professional society meetings or in academic and educational settings.
Our alumni will show evidence of success in at least one of a variety of post graduate experiences. These experiences include but are not limited to employment in industry, public service, education, missions/NGO's, and/or participation in graduate school, and success could be demonstrated through achievements such as promotion, completion of an advanced degree, and awards.
