The addition of Energy to the Mechanical Engineering curriculum created a new mechanical engineering model of engineering education in the baccalaureate-level and an opportunity for providing the academic foundation for successful career preparation and lifelong learning for the students. The curriculum has been designed with a system-level approach to traditional mechanical engineering based design, on the fundamentals of undergraduate level engineering within the mechanical engineering discipline, and has provided experiential-oriented approaches for the better understanding of classical mechanical engineering principles. The interdisciplinary nature of energy systems and mechanics requires a cross-cutting education that draws from the synergy of traditional disciplines of mechanical engineering, materials engineering and manufacturing, and computational methods and engineering. We are going to present the outcome based assessment in undergraduate level and discuss components of the program from freshman to senior years, and our successful implementation in developing student learning outcomes assessment, and evaluation approach for ABET accreditation.
