Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering 

ABET

 

The Bachelor of Science degrees in Aerospace Engineering and Mechanical Engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

 

Departmental Mission Statement

The mission of the mechanical and aerospace engineering department is to prepare our students to be successful professionals in the global industrial, research and/or academic environment.  This is achieved via developing curricula and continually inproving the quality of our academic programs through assessment and professional accreditation that enable students to achieve four education objectives: academic fundamentals, engineering practices, teamwork and communication, and professional development.  Graduates of the mechanical and aerospace engineering department are equipped with the knowledge and capabilities to solve real-world engineering problems and to advance the state-of-the-art in their selected fields.

 

Educational Objectives & Student Outcomes for the B.S. in Aerospace Engineering Program

The program educational objectives for the B.S. in Aerospace Engineering program at Florida Tech are:
