Drivers for change l.jpg
Drivers for Change

  • Desire to best prepare our graduates to succeed in the professional workplace of the future.

  • Desire to distinguish the ME Program as preeminent in undergraduate engineering education.

  • Globalization, rate of technology change, workforce trends

  • NAE’s The Engineer of 2020

  • Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET)


Purdue university mission statement l.jpg
Purdue University Mission Statement

The mission of Purdue University is to serve the citizens of Indiana, the United States, and the world through discovery that expands the realm of knowledge, learning through dissemination and preservation of knowledge, and engagement through exchange of knowledge.


Program educational objectives l.jpg
Program Educational Objectives

1.Discovery –

  • actively embracing leadership roles in the practice of engineering in industry and government organizations (including both traditional and emerging technical areas).

  • conducting research and development across disciplines (via graduate study or industry) to advance technology and foster innovation in order to compete successfully in the global economy.

  • applying their engineering problem solving skills to less-traditional career paths (e.g., law, medicine, business, start-up ventures, non-profit, and public policy, etc.).


Program educational objectives cont l.jpg
Program Educational Objectives (Cont.)

2. Learning –

  • being prepared for and actively participating in on-going professional development opportunities (informal interactions with colleagues, and formal conferences, workshops, short courses, graduate education, etc.).

  • updating and adapting their core knowledge and abilities to compete in the ever changing global enterprise.

  • developing new knowledge and skills to pursue new career opportunities.


Program educational objectives cont7 l.jpg
Program Educational Objectives (Cont.)

3. Engagement –

  • serving as ambassadors for the engineering profession, helping others develop a passion for engineering.

  • exchanging and applying knowledge to create new opportunities that advance our society and solve a variety of technical and social problems.

  • advancing entrepreneurial ventures and fostering activities that support sustainable economic development that enhance the quality of life of people in the State, across the country, and around the world.

The Three Pillars of the Purdue Undergraduate Engineering Education


Me program changes l.jpg
ME Program Changes

  • 5 Yr BSME/MBA Program– This is functioning now in its 4nd year.

  • BSME w/Management Minor– We have approved allowing students to use upper level MGMT courses as Technical Electives so they can do the minor without extra courses.  This will increase the number of students seeking this option.

  • ME 263 Introduction to Design, Innovation and Entrepreneurship – We are renaming ME 263 (our sophomore design course) as shown to reflect the greater emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurship in the course.

  • ME 463 Design, Innovation and Entrepreneurship – Like ME 263, We are in the process of renaming ME 463 with the similar emphasis.

  • Entrepreneurship Certificate – We are examining ways to enable our ME students to earn an Entrepreneurship Certificate using ME 263 as one of their two discipline courses and ME 463 as their capstone entrepreneurship course. Other ME courses will be approved as option courses.


Me program changes cont l.jpg
ME Program Changes (Cont.)

  • Multidisciplinary Emphasis in ME 263– We are planning on piloting 1-2 divisions of ME 263 with a mix of ME students and other Entrepreneurship Certificate students (primarily students from other engineering programs).

  • Multidisciplinary Emphasis in ME 463– Like ME 263, we want to open ME 463 to serve as the capstone course for other non-ME students in their Entrepreneurship Certificate.

  • Rename “ME 290 Global Engineering Professional Seminar” – to reflect the greater emphasis on global issues. 

  • Develop Less-Traditional Career Paths – e.g. Public Policy, Law, Medicine, non-Profit, Entrepreneurship Certificate, Global Competency Certificate, Homeland Security, etc.

  • How Stuff Works Course– to help students develop a knowledge base of engineering terminology and an improved mechanical aptitude.

  • 5Yr BSME/MSME Program – Starting this year.

  • Expanding the GEARE Program– Developing a broader array of opportunities.
