Mechanical Engineering Program Educational Objectives

Mechanical engineering graduates of the California Maritime Academy working in the engineering profession will:

A. Be well educated professionals who utilize their intellectual learning, applied technology experience, leadership skills and global awareness in successful careers, and continue to improve their skills through lifelong learning and advanced studies;

B. Effectively practice as professional engineers, managers, and leaders in the maritime and energy industries and a wide variety other fields, and as licensed engineers in the merchant marine;

C. Successfully combine fundamental engineering knowledge, core leadership skills and the practical experience gained at the Academy to turn ideas into reality for the benefit of society;

D. Be influential members of multidisciplinaryteams, creatively and effectively contributing to the design, development, and objective evaluation of engineering components, systems, and products, and clearly communicating the work in an appropriate manner to their customers and colleagues; and

E. Personally assume and actively encourage peers to uphold the professional, ethical, social and environmental responsibilities of their profession.
