Specific Program Educational Objectives (i.e., skills and abilities that graduates can bring to their position after having graduated from NPS and receiving 3-5 more years of on-the-job training and professional development) include: • Technical Expertise* • Leadership* • Operational Utilization* *See notes 28 Updated ABET Student Outcomes • • Student Outcomes for the NPS Astronautical Engineering program are: 1. Graduating students will have knowledge and skills equivalent to an ABET-accredited BSAE. 2. Graduating students will have advanced level knowledge in Astronautical Engineering as demonstrated by the ability to apply masters level knowledge in one of the available specialized disciplines of Astronautical Engineering. 3. Graduating students will have high level of communication skills including technical writing and oral presentation. 4. Graduating students will have the ability to independently identify, formulate and solve technical and engineering problems in Astronautical Engineering. 5. Graduating students will have the ability to apply technical knowledge in a leadership role related to national security. To fulfill their future responsibilities and meet the intent of Student Outcome 5, the program sponsor has specified that Navy officer graduates have technical knowledge and competence in the following specific areas (aligned with ESRs): • Orbital Mechanics and Space Environment • Propulsion Systems • National Security Space Systems • Spacecraft Thermal Control • Project Management and System Acquisition • Spacecraft Power • Remote Sensing and Payload Design • Spacecraft Design, Integration and Systems Engineering0 • Spacecraft Communications and Signal Processing • Computers: Hardware and Software • Spacecraft Guidance and Control • Spacecraft Structures, Materials and Dynamics 29 ABET Accreditation • • The six year ABET accreditation cycle was completed this year • Self-study report submitted to ABET 27 June 2013 • Accreditation team visit was 8-10 September 2013 Request sponsor approval of updated Program Educational Objectives 30 Questions or Comments?
