Assessment Program:

Two methods of assessment shall be employed. These are the Exit Examination and the Graduate Employees Survey.

With the exception of the Pre-Engineering program, exit examinations shall be given to all graduating students. The exit examinations shall be prepared to reflect the major courses of the programs. Exit examinations of these programs shall be reviewed every two years to reflect new courses developed and offered.

Reports and surveys from employers of graduates will be collected and analyzed at the end of each academic year. The survey shall be prepared to quantitatively assess student’s knowledge and training.

Data collected from the exit exam and internship survey will be analyzed by faculty to identify areas of strength and weakness, to plan changes and modifications as to training needs and to assess the trend of the profession as a whole.

As per the two+two articulation agreement between Lincoln University and University of Missouri-Rolla (UMR) and University of Missouri-Columbia (UMC), graduates of the Pre-Engineering program transfer to these schools to complete their B.S. degree in their respective engineering fields. Therefore, the success of Lincoln University students who transfer to complete their degrees (Engineering Design Phase) to other engineering schools is a quantitative measure of the students outcome as well as the qualitative measure of the pre-engineering program. To that end, Lincoln has been requesting yearly reports from these schools as to the status of the transfer students. Yearly reports of each student’s GPA, as well as success rates and duration each of student’s stay at these schools are received yearly. This will be continued and data collected shall be used as an assessment tool.

 

Computer Skills Requirement:

CS 103 is required for all majors.

Required Courses:

Major: Bachelor of Science Degree Programs

Civil Engineering Technology: A student may major in Civil Engineering Technology by completing the following with a minimum grade of “C”: CET 105, 106, 201, 202, 215, 225, 250, 304, 312, 320, 330, 331, 360, 361, 365, 401, 402; CS 103, 237, 443; ET 101. Majors must complete with a minimum grade of ”C” six hours selected from CET 350, 366, 365, 410 or 414. In addition, majors must complete with a passing grade MAT 113, 114, 123; PHY 101, 102.



Major: Associate in Applied Science Programs (two-year)

Drafting Technology: A minimum grade of ”C” in CET 105, 106, 211, 215, 310, 312, 320; ET 101; MT 103; CS 103, 237. In addition, majors must complete with a passing grade GE 101; ENG 101, 102; MAT 113, 114; SPT 206; and 10 hours of technical electives.

Minor: A student may minor in any of the curricula above by satisfactorily completing a minimum of 18 hours with a minimum grade of “C” in the curriculum selected, including 6 upper division hours.

Minor: Associate of Science Program (two-year)

Pre-engineering: Lincoln University has a cooperative agreement with the University of Missouri at Rolla and Columbia which allows students to take the first two years of coursework at Lincoln, culminating in an A.S. degree, and the remaining two years at UMR or UMC in the engineering curriculum chosen. The engineering faculty in this department serve as advisors to students planning to transfer to other universities to complete engineering degrees.
