The following curricular outcomes serve to facilitate the achievement of the general program objectives.
- Educational breadth and worldview development: Students will receive a broad-based education that educates the whole person for life-long learning and service and enables the engineering student to develop his or her Christian worldview.
- Obedience and responsibility: Students will be able to articulate a vision for the communal task of building models of normative technology with respect to fiduciary, ethical, juridic, economic, social, lingual, aesthetic, cultural, and analytical aspects of the creation.
- Teamwork: Students will develop an ability to engage in the communal task of engineering by participating in group design projects and other engineering related activities that require professional interaction beyond the classroom.
- Problem solving and critical thinking: Students will develop the capacity for critical thinking and demonstrate an ability to identify, formulate, and solve problems.
- Communication: Students will be able to effectively express ideas and information through public speaking, writing, and graphical forms of communication.
- Societal and historical context: Students will have an understanding of contemporary issues within the broader context of historical, cultural, and societal development; a knowledge that will help students to know their place and task in the dynamic unfolding of creation in time, what has been called the cultural mandate.
- Engineering design: Students will develop the ability to holistically design systems, components, or processes, giving consideration to the fiduciary, ethical, juridic, economic, social, lingual, aesthetic, formative, and analytical norms for design.
- Engineering, math, and science fundamentals: Students will demonstrate an ability to apply foundational knowledge in mathematics, science, and engineering, and gain an appreciation for the numerical and spatial aspects of the creation.
- Engineering skills and tools: Students will have the ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools (e.g. computational tools) necessary for professional engineering practice.
- Experimental design and analysis: Students will have the ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
