Student Learning Outcomes for Engineering:

Students will be able to:

  • Apply basic and advanced principles of mathematics, science, and engineering.

  • Design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.

  • Design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.

  • Function on multi-disciplinary teams.

  • Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.

  • Understand and commit to professional and ethical responsibility.

  • Communicate effectively orally and in writing.

  • Understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.

  • Recognize the need for, and engage in life-long learning and professional growth.

  • Understand contemporary issues.

  • Use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

The Engineering major is a rigorous program designed to lead to a technical career in industry or graduate school in engineering. The Engineering degree with concentrations in Mechanical and Electrical is accredited by the Engineering Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone: (410) 347-7700. The new concentration in Sustainable Design introduced in fall 2011 has not yet been evaluated by ABET, but will be as part of the Engineering major in 2014.. Our engineering program is designed to prepare graduates who will: 1) develop successful careers relating to the design, development and/or implementation of complex devices and systems within fields integrating electrical, mechanical and modern physics aspects; 2) meet the demands and challenges of the rapidly changing world and the global marketplace, researching and developing novel technologies to solve the problems and address market forces in society; 3) continue to develop their technical and professional skills throughout their careers; 4) display unwavering high ethical standards; and 5) contribute to the needs of, and in other ways enhance, their local communities and the world at large.

Engineering majors may substitute PHY 200  for one of their Natural and Physical Science Core courses. PH 275  is approved to satisfy Humanities Core. Students may take up to 19 credits in up to three semesters at Elizabethtown without paying a credit overload fee. Engineering and Physics students must earn a C- or better in ALL prerequisite Engineering and Physics courses to continue in the major.

Engineering majors also must either:

(1) Select one of the following concentrations and complete all the courses in it, or (2) Earn the degree without a concentration by completing any five of the engineering courses listed under the four concentrations.
