  1. An ability to understand and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the engineering design processes.
  2. An ability to obtain and apply an overall understanding of design communication methods including written, oral, and graphical communications.
  3. An understanding of teamwork and group dynamics.

  5. An understanding of measurement techniques and importance of tolerances
  6. An ability to develop a recognition of specification precedence.

Academic Advising

The objectives of the university’s academic advising program are to help advisees identify and achieve their academic goals, to promote their intellectual discovery, and to encourage students to take advantage of both in-and out-of class educational opportunities in order that they become self-directed learners and decision makers.

Both advisers and advisees share responsibility for making the advising relationship succeed. By encouraging their advisees to become engaged in their education, to meet their educational goals, and to develop the habit of learning, advisers assume a significant educational role. The advisee’s unit of enrollment will provide each advisee with a primary academic adviser, the information needed to plan the chosen program of study, and referrals to other specialized resources.
