Engineering Marketable Skills are based on required objectives from the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). ABET accredits 4-year engineering schools, so all engineering schools must establish they meet these objectives (among others).

Marketable Skills

1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering

2. An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability

3. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams

4. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems

5. An ability to communicate effectively
