The table below lists the skills, knowledge, and behaviors characteristic of every student who graduates from Oregon State School of Mechanical, Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering with a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering. These Mechanical Engineering Student Outcomes are paired by the MIME Program Educational Objective with which they are most closely associated.

Within three to five years of graduation, School of MIME  graduates in mechanical engineering will have:
