Undergraduate Study
ABET Outcomes

The Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET has established standards for Student Outcomes of accredited engineering programs.  In McCormick, the following degree programs are ABET accredited:
Biomedical Engineering
Chemical Engineering
Civil Engineering
Computer Engineering
Electrical Engineering
Environmental Engineering
Manufacturing and Design Engineering
Materials Science and Engineering
Mechanical Engineering

The standard ABET Student Outcomes for engineering programs are:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. 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.
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

ABET Course Partitioning (by Academic Department)

A course-by-course breakdown, subdivided by department, of how McCormick’s individual course offerings fulfill ABET’s outcome requirements for engineering students.

ABET’s curriculum requirements for engineering mandate that courses fulfill one of three categories:

  • Mathematics and Basic Science
  • Engineering Topics
  • General Education

The course partitioning page shows which ABET curriculum requirements are met by McCormick’s course offerings.
