Under the construction idea of “relying on industry, matching industry, positioning occupation, serving the society”, Mechanical Design, Manufacturing and Automation (Sino-US) Program (MDMA) aims to implement the fundamental task of fostering character and civic virtue, cultivate applied research and practice ability oriented applied senior technical and management talents who have firm foundation in natural sciences, good humanistic quality, strong sense of social responsibility and grasp the basic knowledge of mechanical design, manufacturing and automation. Graduates can engage in scientific research, design and manufacturing, test analysis, technology development, project management, etc. in mechanical design, mechanical manufacturing, electromechanical control and other related fields. Graduates are application-oriented senior technical and managerial talents who have both applied research capability and applied practical ability.
Ningbo University of Technology-Wayne State University Mechanical Design, Manufacturing and Automation (Sino-Us) Program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe what graduates are expected to attain within a few years after graduation. Program educational objectives are based on the needs of the program's constituencies.
PEO-1 To produce graduates who attain gainful employment and practice successfully in mechanical related engineering technology professions;
PEO-2 To produce graduates who remain technically current and adapt to rapidly changing technologies through continuous learning and self-improvement;
PEO-3 To produce graduates who demonstrate independent thinking and function effectively in teams to solve open-ended problems in an industrial environment;
PEO-4 To produce graduates who communicate effectively and perform ethically and professionally in business, industry, and society.
Student outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the knowledge, skills, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program.
Student outcomes for this program are:
1.an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
2.an ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
3.an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
4.an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes; and
5.an ability to function effectively as a member and leader on technical teams.
