Oregon State School of MIME Undergraduate ABET Accreditation

Three of the four MIME undergraduate degree programs – Mechanical Engineering (ME), Industrial Engineering (IE), and Manufacturing Engineering (MfgE) – have been accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, tel. 410.347.7700.

Our newest degree program in Energy Systems Engineering (ESE), established in 2010, will be submitted for accreditation consideration in a future ABET review cycle.

ABET is a nonprofit, non-governmental organization that accredits college and university programs in the disciplines of applied science, computing, engineering, and engineering technology. ABET accreditation, which is voluntary and achieved through a peer review process, provides assurance that a college or university program meets the quality standards established by the profession for which the program prepares its students.
 

Oregon State School of MIME Undergraduate Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

ABET, Inc. requires that each accredited undergraduate program establish program educational objectives (PEOs).  PEOs are defined as “broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the program is preparing graduates to achieve.”

Three PEOs have been identified for the Mechanical, Industrial, Manufacturing, and Energy Systems Engineering programs and are listed below.

Mechanical Engineering
Within three to five years of graduation, our graduates in mechanical engineering will have:

PEO 1.)  Created value to organizations through the analysis, evaluation, and improvement of engineered systems and processes using appropriate mechanical engineering methods and tools.

PEO 2.)  Communicated effectively across disciplines and cultures to manage and/or lead activities in support of organizational goals and objectives.

PEO 3.)  Innovated systems and processes, in response to organizational challenges, though the application of structured and unstructured mechanical engineering methodologies, including engineering design and problem-solving.
 

Industrial Engineering
Within three to five years of graduation, our graduates in industrial engineering will have:

PEO 1.)  Created value to organizations through the analysis, evaluation, and improvement of engineered systems and processes using appropriate industrial engineering methods and tools.

PEO 2.)  Communicated effectively across disciplines and cultures to manage and/or lead activities in support of organizational goals and objectives.

PEO 3.)  Innovated systems and processes, in response to organizational challenges, though the application of structured and unstructured industrial engineering methodologies, including engineering design and problem-solving.

Manufacturing Engineering
Within three to five years of graduation, our graduates in manufacturing engineering will have:

PEO 1.)  Created value to organizations through the analysis, evaluation, and improvement of engineered systems and processes using appropriate manufacturing engineering methods and tools.

PEO 2.)  Communicated effectively across disciplines and cultures to manage and/or lead activities in support of organizational goals and objectives.

PEO 3.)  Innovated systems and processes, in response to organizational challenges, though the application of structured and unstructured manufacturing engineering methodologies, including engineering design and problem-solving.

Energy Systems Engineering
Within three to five years of graduation, our graduates in energy systems engineering will have:

PEO 1.)  Created value to organizations through the analysis, evaluation, and improvement of engineered systems and processes using appropriate systems engineering methods and tools.

PEO 2.)  Communicated effectively across disciplines and cultures to manage and/or lead activities in support of organizational goals and objectives.

PEO 3.)  Innovated systems and processes, in response to organizational challenges, though the application of structured and unstructured systems engineering methodologies, including engineering design and problem-solving.

 

Undergraduate Student Outcomes

ABET also requires accredited programs to articulate student outcomes that describe the knowledge, skills, and behaviors characteristic of all new program graduates and that position these individuals for achieving the specified PEOs.
