Program Criteria

  • 1. Curriculum
              i.   The curriculum must require students to apply principles mathematics  (including multivariate calculus and differential equations); to model, analyze, design, and realize  physical systems, components or processes;
 
              ii.  The curriculum must require students to apply principles of engineering, basic science to model, analyze, design, and realize  physical systems, components or processes; and
 
              iii.  prepare students to work professionally in either  thermal or mechanical systems while requiring topics in each area.

  • 2. Faculty

The program must demonstrate that faculty members responsible for the upper-level professional program are maintaining currency in their specialty area.
