# InterPro - Identify Course Goals

Once the course-level goals have been identified, the program director or instructor breaks down those larger goals into learning objectives. See InterPro - Teaching Resources for Instructors - Write Learning Objectives for more help with this process.

Example Course-level Goals

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

communicate about systems using mathematical, verbal and visual means.

choose appropriate models for a problem, using observed data and knowledge of the physical system.

explain and demonstrate the role that analysis and modeling play in engineering design and engineering applications.

Example of Course Goal and Learning Objective Alignment

Course Goal

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to communicate about systems using mathematical, verbal, and visual means.

Learning ObjectivesThe following are a few of the many learning objectives that would support the course goal above.

Upon completion of this unit, students will be able to:

draw a diagram of the system

identify the mathematical equations involved in the system

calculate the mathematical equations involved in the system given needed parameters
