In this manufacturing engineering program, the internship course is mandatory. The benefit of such course is that the permanent placement rates of this program are higher when compared to similar institutions. Many of the students are staying in their internship companies as engineers after graduation. On the contrary, it is becoming harder to place all of the students into industrial internships due to increasing enrollments in both the domestic and international students. Thus, the internship coordinator and faculty members have modified the format of the experience, adding in-house research projects sponsored by the faculty members along with external research experiences including National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) or similar programs. In addition to REUs, some students are also finding employment directly at the partnering colleges.
For the assessment process, the program has utilized student and employer surveys in gaining feedback for continuous improvement. Student surveys are based on the perception of students on attaining the ABET student outcomes (a-k) while supervisor surveys are performance metrics and competency based. This paper will map ABET student outcomes and supervisor survey metrics. The correlation between the outcomes and expectations of employers will be determined and gaged based on the data collected over a span of few years.
