University Scholars Program in Mechanical Engineering

  • Approved by UA Graduate School: Spring 2004
  • A program aimed at outstanding undergraduate students(3.5 overall GPA, junior or senior)
  • USP-ME students allowed to take up to 6 hours of dual credit courses, i.e. courses which can be applied to both the BSME and MSME degrees
  • Will help to recruit our own undergraduate students
  • Please announce to your undergraduate students!
slide6

MSME Core Classes

  • Question: Do we want to have a core sequence of classes?
  • Possible MSME Thermal Systems core classes:- ME 501 Engineering Analysis- ME 509 Intermediate Heat Transfer- ME 605 Classical Thermodynamics- AEM 500 Intermediate Fluid Mechanics
  • Possible Mechanical Systems core classes
  • Reevaluation of graduate course offerings(new people, new courses, removal of courses no longer taught)
slide7

SACS Accreditation

  • Expected Learning Outcomes
  • Results of Assessment
  • Improvements Based on Assessment
  • Need to Develop Assessment Tools- Yearly Faculty Survey (obtained during annual faculty retreat)- Exit Survey (obtained just after thesis/dissertation defense)- Exit Interview (obtained by Department Head)
  • Need to Establish Assessment Goals
slide8

GTA Assignments

  • GTA positions as a recruiting tool?
  • GTA Committee Membership- Department Head, Chair of Committee- Graduate Program Coordinator- Faculty Member (one year rotating assignment)
  • GTA Assignment Committee- Identify GTA commitments (GCF awards, start-up, etc.)- XX% of uncommitted GTA positions to recruit students (using GCF model for awards process)- Award Guidelines
  • GTA Assignment Guidelines- No faculty member should have more than 1 student supported using GTA funds (unless as part of a GCF commitment)- GTA awards are for a single year (unless otherwise specified by Department Head)
