Program Operational Goals
Department Goals plus the DF Educational Outcomes give rise to Program Operational Goals (POGs).
The labs, program offices, squadrons, wings, etc. that our graduates serve in the Air Force are our constituency. Our constituency established the POGs to describe the attributes expected of USAFA Engineering Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering graduates within a few years after graduation.
Since the POGs embody the intent of ABET Criterion 2 they are synonymous with what the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) refers to as Program Educational Objectives. In addition, our constituency provides continuous evaluation of the POGs as to their applicability and degree of fulfillment by our graduates in their Air Force organizations.
