This paper intends to discuss a course assessment procedure to link course learning outcomes to program outcomes for ABET accreditation requirements. ME 323 Vibrations is used as an example to demonstrate this course assessment procedure. The procedure begins with the development of course objectives and learning outcomes. Then course learning outcomes are directly mapped with the program outcomes. Mapped learning outcomes and program outcomes are integrated into the course syllabus, and shared with students. Students are required to read both of them as the first course assignment. Further, the course teaching contents and learning activities are developed according to the established course objectives. Achievements of students are evaluated according to a program assessment evaluation form. The current course evaluation results indicate that the approach provides a promising tool for ME course assessment per ABET requirements.
