Mechanical Engineering Technology - Student Learning Outcomes
Mechanical Engineering Technology Mission
The Mechanical Engineering Technology program at SUNY Canton will provide students with the expertise, knowledge, and practical industry skills that will make them successful in the field of mechanical engineering technology after graduation and capable of continued growth either through professional development or continued graduate education.
- An ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities
- An ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies
- An ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes
- An ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives
- An ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team
- An ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems
- An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature
- An understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development
- An understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity
- A knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context
- A commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement
