MET Outcomes & Objectives
The Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) program at Oklahoma State University focuses on preparing graduates so that they are able to productively contribute at their workplace after a short introductory period. A graduate from the OSU MET program should be able to:
- Employ the latest design and analysis tools in engineering and manufacturing.
- Introduce new technologies and methods into their workplace to maximize value to their employer.
- Work collaboratively in multi-disciplinary teams.
- Demonstrate professionalism in the workplace by using the highest standards of ethics and personal integrity.
- Be a life-long learner through participation and membership in professional organizations, continuation of professional/graduate studies, and/or self-study.
Students graduating from the MET program are expected to achieve the following:
- 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;
- an ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- 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;
- an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes; and
- an ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
