Engineering has been designed to meet the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) student learning outcomes. Engineering students will be able to select to earn either a Bachelor of Arts with a major in engineering or a Bachelor of Science in Engineering.

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering will be developed to align with the ABET standards so that graduates may pursue Professional Engineer (PE) licensure.

Engineering programs are not eligible for ABET accreditation until after the first graduates have completed the program.

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon graduation, Carthage Engineering students will have acquired the knowledge, skills, and behaviors required:

  1. To identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. 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. To communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. 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. 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. To develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. To acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
