Nuclear Engineering Program Educational Objectives
The nuclear engineering program educational objectives indicate what graduates can do a short time (3-5 years) following graduation. They are listed below:
- As Army leaders, graduates solve complex, multi-disciplinary problems for the Army and the Nation.
- Graduates demonstrate the necessary leadership and teamwork skills to lead and work on multi-disciplinary teams.
- Graduates are prepared to provide appropriate nuclear and radiological engineering expertise to the Army.
- Graduates communicate effectively, orally and in writing; providing clear instructions to subordinates and feedback to supervisors.
- Graduates continue to grow intellectually and professionally - as Army officers and as engineers.
Nuclear Engineering Student Outcomes
The nuclear engineering student outcomes are that cadets possess or must attain:
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
- an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
- an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
