Engineering in an ABET accredited program

The Bachelors of Science in Engineering program is reviewed and accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET), to ensure academic standards meet accreditation requirements.

Implementing our vision and mission statements

From the Fort Lewis College mission statement and the engineering mission and vision statements, we have developed Program Educational Objectives that our alumni (graduates) should possess and Student Educational Outcomes for our students while engaged in their engineering education.

Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE)

Program Educational Objectives (Alumni working in industry)

  1. Alumni successfully utilize engineering principles for design and analysis as needed by their field.
  2. Alumni consistently exhibit effective communication, teamwork, and ethical behavior as standard practice in the workplace and continue to learn through workplace experiences as well as through formal educational opportunities.
  3. Alumni successfully pursue a broad range of career paths.

Student Outcomes

By graduation, students will have the ability to:

  • Identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  • 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.
  • Communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  • 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.
  • Function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  • Develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgement to draw conclusions.
  • Acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
