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.

Student Outcomes

  1. An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline
  2. An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly -defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline
  3. An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature
  4. An bility to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes
  5. An ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams
