Systems thinking and integrative learning outcomes Conference Paper uri icon


  • Although the eleven program educational outcomes in the ABET Engineering Criteria require considerable breadth and depth in the capabilities of engineering graduates, additional outcomes have been offered to encompass the modes of thinking required for engineering graduates. One of these additional outcomes is systems thinking. Many different subjects have at one time or another been included under the umbrella of systems thinking, but more specific statements of learning outcomes are required. The paper proposes a preliminary set of learning outcomes, based on framework which combines an established taxonomy of learning outcomes, the revised Bloom's taxonomy, with a set of expectations for engineering graduates that has been supported by employers and at least twenty-two institutions.
