Mechanical Engineering Technology
This program prepares students with theory and application to develop products and mechanical systems from design to manufacturing. Laboratory experiences strengthen analytical, technical, and professional skills, enabling students to apply engineering principles and technology to solve industry problems. Graduates have a broad range of career options such as mechanical design, product development, or manufacturing.
The mechanical engineering technology program options are built upon a strong foundation of science, mathematics, applied technical courses and interpersonal communications designed to meet current industry needs. Courses in technical graphics with CAD, manufacturing processes, materials, materials strength and testing, computer numerical control, automated manufacturing systems, machine design and instrumentation provide a broad range of technical skills with which to pursue a career in mechanical engineering technology. These are complemented by required and elective courses in communications, management, humanities, social sciences and business.
