The function of the School of Engineering Educational Objectives and Outcomes Assessment Committee (OAC) is to coordinate School of Engineering (SoE) processes for continuous improvement of its programs. The committee shall: (1) develop and implement methods for assessing and evaluating the educational experience of our students, including the extent to which engineering graduates achieve programmatic and school-wide education outcomes and objectives; (2) periodically review the content of all engineering courses and assess for each course the amount of coverage of engineering topics; and (3) work with Office of Institutional Research & Evaluation (OIR&E) in developing instruments such as the student, alumni, and employer surveys.
Members of the OAC include program director faculty members representing each of the eight ABET-accredited programs in SoE (BSBME, BSCHE, BSCE, BSCPE, BSCS, BSEE, BSEVE, and BSME) plus representatives from the Gordon Institute, SoE Dean's Office, and OIR&E. Program Director faculty members typically have tenure, although tenure is not required. A close familiarity with Tufts programs is expected. Program Director faculty members are appointed by his/her respective department.
The committee meets on a monthly basis for approximately 90 minutes to coordinate continuous improvement and related self-study processes for SOE ABET-accredited programs; and evaluates results from and update student, alumni, and alumni employer surveys for SoE. Program Director faculty members are also responsible for preparation for ABET accreditation visits. This committee is not appropriate for tenure-track faculty members.
