Student Outcomes

The Student Outcomes define the knowledge and skills that will be mastered by our graduates. To enable Texas Tech industrial engineering students to accomplish the ABET program objectives, the curriculum is designed to assure that students, at the time of graduation, are able to:

  1. Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
  2. Design and conduct experiments, as well as analyze and interpret data.
  3. Design, develop, implement and improve a component, process, or integrated system of people, materials, information, equipment, and energy to meet desired needs within realistic constraints (such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability).
  4. Function on multidisciplinary teams.
  5. Identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  6. Understand professional and ethical responsibility.
  7. Communicate effectively.
  8. Understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  9. Recognize the need for, and have the ability to engage in life-long learning.
  10. Know contemporary issues.
  11. Use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
