BSAE Outcome 1

Ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex aerospace engineering problems through application of mathematics, science, and engineering principles. [University Learning Goals: Specialized Knowledge, Intellectual Skills, Applied Knowledge]

Outcome Element 1.1
Ability to identify, formulate and solve complex aerospace engineering problems.
(Assessed in AE162)

Outcome Performance Indicators:

1.1.1: Engage in the solution of problems (spend adequate time on task, ask questions, etc.).

1.1.2: Define open-ended, complex aerospace engineering problems in appropriate engineering terms.

1.1.3: Explore problems (i.e., examine various issues, make appropriate assumptions, etc.).

1.1.4: Develop a plan for the solution (i.e., select theories, principles, approaches from aerospace structures, aerospace dynamics, aerodynamics, flight mechanics, aerospace propulsion, stability, and control, as appropriate).

1.1.5: Implement the solution plan and check the accuracy of the calculations.

1.1.6: Evaluate the results (do they make sense?)

1.1.7: Reflect on personal strengths and weaknesses in applying the problem solving methodology.
