Graduates of associate degree programs must demonstrate knowledge and technical competency appropriate to the objectives of the program in:
engineering materials, applied mechanics, and manufacturing methods.
applied drafting practice emphasizing mechanical components and systems, as well as fundamentals of descriptive geometry, orthographic projection, sectioning, tolerancing and dimensioning, and basic computer aided drafting and design with technical depth in at least one of these areas.
the application of physics and engineering materials having an emphasis in applied mechanics, or in-depth application of physics having emphasis in mechanical components and design.
Graduates of baccalaureate degree programs, in addition to outcomes required of associate degree graduates, must demonstrate competency in the application of manuals, handbooks, material and/or equipment specifications, and related software in advanced drafting/design. Competency in the application of current codes and standards must be demonstrated with open-ended design experiences that integrate materials, manufacturing, design analysis, or graphics. Understanding of concepts relating to the environmental and economic impacts of design must also be demonstrated. Graduates must also demonstrate competency in:
d. design of machine elements, advanced drafting including current three dimensional computer representations as related to mechanical design, and manufacturing methods. Advanced proficiency must be demonstrated in at least three drafting / design related areas, consistent with the technical orientation of the program.
e. the in-depth application of physics and engineering materials having emphasis in drafting, manufacturing, and design of mechanical components.
