The undergraduate program "Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (ME) Program", is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org .
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)
Graduates of the (applied) mechanical engineering program should have attained one or more of the following objectives within a few years after completion of their degrees:
Pursue a successful career in mechanical engineering, other related fields, or engage in entrepreneurship
Continuation of their lifelong learning and professional development through self-study, continuing education, graduate studies, or professional certification

The mechanical engineering department has adopted the new student outcomes (1) - (7), as given in the revised Criterion 3 for accrediting engineering programs by EAC, namely:
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
- an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
- an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
