The Nuclear Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org
The department recognizes the following ABET engineering accreditation commission outcomes as its student outcomes. At the time of graduation, it is expected that each student has demonstrated the following:
- 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.
Educational Objectives (PEOs)
- Graduates who enter professional practice will demonstrate progression toward positions of technical responsibility or leadership in their discipline.
- Graduates who pursue full-time graduate or advanced professional study will successfully complete their programs of study in their discipline.
- Graduates will continue professional development practices that enable them to remain competent in the ever-expanding discipline of nuclear engineering.
