Biological Engineering Undergraduate Program Outcomes Data
NWCCU

Tables 4 and 5 summarize the BE program expected minimum levels of attainment and actual levels of attainment of Student Learning Objectives a-k.  Levels of attainment exceeded expected minimum levels of attainment for all three processes (Table 1).

Table 4. Results of Evaluation Processes, Expected Minimum Levels of Attainment, and Actual Levels of Attainment

PROCESS EXPECTED LEVEL OF ATTAINMENT ACTUAL LEVEL OF ATTAINMENT 2013-2014
IAB jury, Capstone Design Projects A score of 70% is the expected level of attainment for each specific Student Outcome 87%
IAB jury, confidential senior interviews A score of 70% is the expected level of attainment for each specific Student Outcome 88%
Fundamentals of Engineering Exam Results Expected level of overall attainment is an exam pass rate equal to or greater than the National Average Program level of attainment 95%  
National level of attainment 77%

Results for the FE Examination show that the pass rate for students in the BE Program exceeds the national pass rate. Therefore the program exceeds the minimum expectation of a pass rate equivalent to the national pass rate.

PROCESS EXPECTED LEVEL OF ATTAINMENT ACTUAL LEVEL OF ATTAINMENT 2014-2015
IAB jury, Capstone Design Projects A score of 70% is the expected level of attainment for each specific Student Outcome  100%
IAB jury, confidential senior interviews A score of 70% is the expected level of attainment for each specific Student Outcome  95%
Fundamentals of Engineering Exam Results Expected level of overall attainment is an exam pass rate equal to or greater than the National Average Program level of attainment 98%  
National level of attainment 84%

Results for the FE Examination show that the pass rate for students in the BE Program exceeds the national pass rate. Therefore the program exceeds the minimum expectation of a pass rate equivalent to the national pass rate.
