Program Outcomes


The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Suleyman Demirel University has prepared the undergraduate program outcomes to provide our graduates with the following knowledge and abilities. These outcomes are accomplished through the obligatory and selective courses, diploma projects, summer practices, and extracurricular activities in our undergraduate curriculum. Their achievement is accessed with the midterm and final exams, the course evaluations and the other evaluation techniques. The graduating students of Suleyman Demirel University's Mechanical Engineering Program will

1. Have sufficient knowledge of mathematics, science, and basic engineering and be able to use that knowledge in the applications of mechanical engineering

2. Have knowledge of chemistry and calculus-based physics with depth in at least one

3. Have knowledge of advanced mathematics through multivariate calculus and differential equations; be familiar with statistics and linear algebra

4. Understand why he/she learns what he/she learns and have multiple opportunities to provide that during his/her university education

5. Have knowledge about the modern engineering tools, techniques and software including information technologies necessary for mechanical engineering applications, as well as use some of them in those applications; be able to develop required tools, techniques and software if necessary; be able to design and conduct experiments for engineering problems, as well as analyze and interpret data

6. Learn and be able to use a variety of means for visual, oral and written communications, learn at least one foreign language to be able to prepare and present presentations for engineering applications

7. Recognize the need and importance for life-long learning, be able to reach the required knowledge, follow the new developments in science and technology and keep himself/herself up-to-date

8. Be aware of environmental, social, political, cultural, ethical, health and safety issues of this century especially in mechanical engineering, have an ability to solve engineering problems to meet the specifications within environmental, social, political, cultural, ethical, health and safety constraints
