We have established program outcomes in concert with the guidelines established by the UI Goal 1 Implementation Team. We are further advised by the policies and guidelines established by the American Society for Engineering Management (ASEM). These outcomes are:
Learn and integrate – Through independent learning and collaborative study, attain, use and develop knowledge in math and statistics, science, engineering, and business across all functional areas of an organization.
Think and create – Use multiple thinking strategies from operational analysis and improvement, technical analysis, organizational analysis, and program management to tackle problems in a complex, technical environment.
Communicate – Demonstrate a command of written and oral communication skills in English. Students must communicate with the technical workforce and members from all functional areas of an organization.
Clarify purpose and perspective – Display an awareness of personal and professional responsibility to make the world a better place and recognize the importance of lifelong learning.
Practice citizenship – Behave in an ethical manner with mutual respect for everyone. Always exhibit socially responsible behavior and respect for diversity in ways that will sustain local and global communities.
Assessment Process Used to ensure Graduates Achieve Program Outcomes
The assessment plan of the Engineering Management Graduate Program is currently in development and is in various stages of implementation in preparation for a future, initial accreditation review by the ASEM. Our goal is to establish a program that implements continuous quality improvement. We are focusing on course-level assessment and overall program-level assessment. The initial program-level assessment has already been conducted.
- Identify outcomes for required courses and concentration areas within the curriculum.
- Map these outcomes into program outcomes.
- Conduct assessment each year and integrate into historical data.
- Make adjustments within courses as indicated by the assessment.
- Conduct assessment each year of program outcomes and integrate into historical data.
- Make adjustments in the program as indicated by the assessment.
