An Overview of the ME Undergraduate Program Jim Jones Associate Professor and Associate Head School of Mechanical Engineering Office: ME 222 Email: [email protected] Web: www.purdue.edu/ME/ Outline Introduction Three Main Points ME Program Educational Objectives & Outcomes A Universe of Opportunities Focus on Learning Concluding Thought Open Question & Answer Period Drivers for Change Desire to best prepare our graduates to succeed in the professional workplace of the future. Desire to distinguish the ME Program as preeminent in undergraduate engineering education. Globalization, rate of technology change, workforce trends NAE’s The Engineer of 2020 Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) Purdue University Mission Statement The mission of Purdue University is to serve the citizens of Indiana, the United States, and the world through discovery that expands the realm of knowledge, learning through dissemination and preservation of knowledge, and engagement through exchange of knowledge. Program Educational Objectives 1. Discovery – actively embracing leadership roles in the practice of engineering in industry and government organizations (including both traditional and emerging technical areas). conducting research and development across disciplines (via graduate study or industry) to advance technology and foster innovation in order to compete successfully in the global economy. applying their engineering problem solving skills to lesstraditional career paths (e.g., law, medicine, business, start-up ventures, non-profit, and public policy, etc.). Program Educational Objectives (Cont.) 2. Learning – being prepared for and actively participating in on-going professional development opportunities (informal interactions with colleagues, and formal conferences, workshops, short courses, graduate education, etc.). updating and adapting their core knowledge and abilities to compete in the ever changing global enterprise. developing new knowledge and skills to pursue new career opportunities. Program Educational Objectives (Cont.) 3. Engagement – serving as ambassadors for the engineering profession, helping others develop a passion for engineering. exchanging and applying knowledge to create new opportunities that advance our society and solve a variety of technical and social problems. advancing entrepreneurial ventures and fostering activities that support sustainable economic development that enhance the quality of life of people in the State, across the country, and around the world. Program Outcomes for Purdue’s Engineer of 2020 Vision: Purdue Engineers will be prepared for leadership roles in responding to the global, technological, economic, and societal challenges of the 21st century. Strategy: We will provide educational experiences that develop students’ knowledge areas, abilities and qualities to enable them to identify needs and construct effective solutions in an economically, socially, and culturally relevant manner. Abilities • leadership Knowledge Areas Qualities • science & math • innovative • engineering fundamentals • strong work ethic • analytical skills • experimental skills • ethically responsible in a global, social, intellectual, and technological context • work effectively in diverse & multicultural environments • open-ended design & problem solving skills • adaptable in a changing environment • work effectively in the global engineering profession • multidisciplinarity within and beyond engineering • entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial • synthesize engineering, business, and societal perspectives • integration of analytical, prob. solving, and design skills • curious and persistent continuous learners • teamwork • communication • decision-making • recognize & manage change The Three Pillars of the Purdue Undergraduate Engineering Education ME Program Changes 5 Yr BSME/MBA Program – This is functioning now in its 4nd year. BSME w/Management Minor – We have approved allowing students to use upper level MGMT courses as Technical Electives so they can do the minor without extra courses. This will increase the number of students seeking this option. ME 263 Introduction to Design, Innovation and Entrepreneurship – We are renaming ME 263 (our sophomore design course) as shown to reflect the greater emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurship in the course. ME 463 Design, Innovation and Entrepreneurship – Like ME 263, We are in the process of renaming ME 463 with the similar emphasis. Entrepreneurship Certificate – We are examining ways to enable our ME students to earn an Entrepreneurship Certificate using ME 263 as one of their two discipline courses and ME 463 as their capstone entrepreneurship course. Other ME courses will be approved as option courses. ME Program Changes (Cont.) Multidisciplinary Emphasis in ME 263 – We are planning on piloting 1-2 divisions of ME 263 with a mix of ME students and other Entrepreneurship Certificate students (primarily students from other engineering programs). Multidisciplinary Emphasis in ME 463 – Like ME 263, we want to open ME 463 to serve as the capstone course for other non-ME students in their Entrepreneurship Certificate. Rename “ME 290 Global Engineering Professional Seminar” – to reflect the greater emphasis on global issues. Develop Less-Traditional Career Paths – e.g. Public Policy, Law, Medicine, non-Profit, Entrepreneurship Certificate, Global Competency Certificate, Homeland Security, etc. How Stuff Works Course – to help students develop a knowledge base of engineering terminology and an improved mechanical aptitude. 5Yr BSME/MSME Program – Starting this year. Expanding the GEARE Program – Developing a broader array of opportunities. Ranking of Importance vs. Effectiveness 1a. Knowledge in ME 1b. Math. Modeling 1c. Exp./Data Analysis 1d. Computer Tools 1e.
