Mission Statement University of Missouri-St. Louis/Washington University Joint Undergradute Engineering Program Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering

The mission of the University of Missouri-St. Louis/Washington University Joint Undergraduate Engineering Program is to provide a high quality mechanical engineering education leading to a well-trained, sophisticated work force primarily for the St. Louis region. The program strives to excite and nurture the intellectual, technical, professional and personal development of the students through a partnership which provides a mechanism for Washington University to share its campus, resources and personnel with the UMSL students, many of whom are place-bound individuals. The Joint Program reflects the commitment of both institutions to work together to provide for the mechanical engineering needs of the St. Louis community.

Program Educational Objectives, Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering

The University of Missouri-St. Louis/Washington University Joint Undergraduate Engineering Program aspires to make positive, substantive and lasting contributions to the lives of our students. The nontraditional and traditional students in the mechanical engineering program often have work experience in or related to engineering practice. The program seeks to impart an education that inspires the graduates to constantly share their knowledge with others, to continually improve their knowledge and understanding, and to persistently adapt to change in technology and world needs. Graduates of the program are expected to develop and use professional skills that facilitate their continued career growth well beyond their graduation and should be able to apply their comprehensive education within the mechanical engineering profession or a related field.The objectives are to:

Student Outcomes

The student outcomes are the skills and knowledge expected of all students at the time of their graduation. Faculty members will assess these student outcomes in their classes every semester. The student outcomes for the Engineering Program are:
