B.S. Mechanical Engineering Technology
Mechanical engineering technology focuses on the applied aspects of science and engineering to prepare graduates for practice in product improvement, manufacturing, engineering operation, sales, production, and implementation of mechanical systems. The goal of the Mechanical Engineering Technology program is to prepare well educated, highly skilled, and socially and professionally responsible engineering technologists from a diverse population of students to create productive and rewarding careers.
On completion of a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology, our students will be able to:
a) Engage in applications-oriented design, manufacturing, and management of mechanical systems, including all technical and economic factors influencing these systems.
b) Use appropriate theory, mathematics, and computational technology to analyze and solve applied engineering problems.
c) Communicate and function effectively as an individual and as a team member in a professional environment.
d) Pursue lifelong learning and continuous improvement of their knowledge and skills in diverse industries with the highest professional and ethical standards.
Some specific employment opportunities would be: Engineer Technical Staff, Engineering Technologist, Mechanical Designer, Senior Designer, Senior Process Analyst, Technical Staff Engineer, CAD Designer (Computer Aided Design Designer), Mechanical Designer/Wind-Chill Administrator, Engineering Tech, Tooling Engineering Tech.
NOTE: This program is not designed to prepare students for a certification such as Professional Engineer.
