Penn State DuBois Students in our engineering lab in the new and beautiful DuBois Educational Foundation (DEF) building. Approximately one in fifty engineers in the United States has earned a degree from Penn State.Engineering Majors dominate the list of college degrees that pay the highest salaries to new college graduates (National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE))
The General Engineering Applied Materials (APMTL) program is a 4-year program that educate students in the deep and broad integration of science and materials engineering for innovative and sustainable solutions to current and future material engineering challenges. Graduates of this program research the relationship between the structure of materials and material properties, processing methods and performance. They develop and modify new and existing ceramics, metals, composites, particulate materials, and polymers and design ways to use these materials to improve quality of life.
Typical employment for General Engineering Applied Materials graduates includes positions such as product engineer, corrosion engineer, metallurgical engineer, development engineer and materials engineer. Graduates of this program develop, process and test materials used to create a range of products. They work with a wide range of substances to create new/improved materials that need to meet specified mechanical, electrical, and chemical requirements.
The educational objectives of the General Engineering program are designed to prepare graduates who, during the first few years of professional practice will:
- Be employed by industry or government in the fields such as, design, research and development, experimentation and testing, manufacturing, and technical sales.
- Assume an increasing level of responsibility and leadership within their respective organizations.
- Communicate effectively and work collaboratively in multidisciplinary and multicultural work environments.
- Recognize and understand global, environmental, social, and ethical contexts of their work.
- Progress to an advanced degree and certificate programs and be committed to lifelong learning to enhance their careers and provide flexibility in responding to changing social and technical environments.
