General Engineering

The General Engineering program strives to maintain a curriculum that promotes excellence in undergraduate education. The general engineering program supports the Academy's mission by providing midshipmen with a broad education in various engineering subjects and a knowledge of fundamental engineering principles that enhance their ability to understand and design naval systems and to supervise the operation of these systems. The program instills in its graduates a desire to maintain high ethical and professional standards and prepares them for continued success in naval service, professional training programs, graduate studies, and/or engineering careers.

The General Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org

Within a few years (3-5 years) of graduation, we want our graduates to have:

  1. Attained warfare qualification.
  2. Successfully served in leadership positions in a technically complex environment typical of the Naval services.

Within five to nine years after graduation, we want our graduates to have:

  1. Pursued graduate studies and/or other forms of continuing education and certification required for their professional development.
  2. Managed technical projects to successful completion, demonstrating knowledge of fundamental engineering principles that enable competence as engineers and leaders who significantly contribute to overall mission effectiveness.

The General Engineering program uses the ABET program curricular outcomes of Criterion 3 (a-k) for its student outcomes.

  1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
  2. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  3. An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
  4. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
  5. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  6. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  7. An ability to communicate effectively.
  8. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  9. A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
  10. A knowledge of contemporary issues.
  11. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
