Mission and Program Objectives

Mission: Stony Brook University

Stony Brook University has a five-part mission:

  • to provide comprehensive undergraduate, graduate, and professional education of the highest quality;
  • to carry out research and intellectual endeavors of the highest international standards that advance theoretical knowledge and are of immediate and long-range practical significance;
  • to provide leadership for economic growth, technology, and culture for neighboring communities and the wider geographic region;
  • to provide state-of-the-art innovative health care, while serving as a resource to a regional health care network and to the traditionally underserved;
  • to fulfill these objectives while celebrating diversity and positioning the University in the global community.

Mission: the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (CEAS)

The mission of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences is to provide:

  • Comprehensive high quality undergraduate education and research opportunities for graduate students and practicing professionals;
  • Leading edge research programs that probe the frontiers of knowledge and contribute to the development of globally competitive economies, both regionally and nationally; and
  • Technology transfer that promotes industrial development, with particular emphasis on the needs of Long Island industry.

The CEAS mission statement is published at http://www.ceas.sunysb.edu/mission.asp

Mission: Mechanical Engineering Department

The Mechanical Engineering Department has established the following missions:

  • Educate undergraduates for professional jobs
  • Educate MS students for development jobs
  • Educate PhD students for academic / R&D jobs
  • Conduct first-class research
  • Secure research funding
  • Serve Department CEAS, University and professional community
  • Interact with and transfer technology to industry
  • Collaborate with research institutions such as Brookhaven National Labs, Cold Spring Harbor Labs, and the Long Island community
  • Interdisciplinary interaction with other SBU units.

MEC Undergraduate Program Educational Objectives:

  • Establish themselves as practicing professionals or engage in advanced study in mechanical engineering.
  • Advance professionally through organized training or self-learning in areas related to mechanical engineering.

MEC Undergraduate Program Outcomes:

   The MEC Program enables the students to achieve, by the time of graduation:

  • the ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  • the ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • the ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
  • the ability to function on multidisciplinary teams
  • the ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • the understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
  • the ability to communicate effectively 
  • the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context
  • a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning
  • a knowledge of contemporary issues
  • an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.
  • an ability to apply the principles of mathematics through multivariate calculus and differential equations,
  • an ability to model, analyze, design and realize physical systems, components, or processes.
  • an ability to work professionally in both thermal and mechanical systems areas.Please note that the outcomes (a) through (k) are exactly ABET student outcomes for ALL engineering programs; while outcomes (l),(m),(n) are additional student outcomes we have adopted specific to our program.
