    Objectives and Design Basis

    Our design of engineering education for the future will be based on three fundamental requirements. Engineering education at Kansas State University will be practiced- oriented while firmly rooted in fundamentals, learning-based, and integrative and holistic.

    The curricular objectives for the College of Engineering are consistent with the university's educational objectives. They also provide the framework for the curricular objectives of each program in the college. Graduates will be:

    · Proficient in the use of the basic sciences and engineering sciences, be able to formulate problems, analyze, synthesize, and develop appropriate engineering solutions.

    · Recognize and appreciate the importance of intensive laboratory and experimental environments that focus on problem solving and engineering design.

    · Be able to work in a team environment with interdisciplinary (lateral) and disciplinary (vertical) depth.

    · Be able to communicate effectively among peers as well as with diverse groups, including nonengineers.

    · Be able to integrate engineering practice into the social, economic, and political arenas.

    · Possess sensitivity in interpersonal relationships, multicultural understandings, and ability to interact on a professional/ ethical basis at the national and international levels.

    · Be motivated to continue increasing their knowledge base through career-long learning.
