Mechanical Engineering Technology - Program Description

Graduates of the Bachelor of Mechanical Technology (B. Tech) program design, operations, construction, maintenance and systems testing. Consumer products, factory automation, and the defense industry are a few of the many areas employing our highly sought graduates.

Students in this Major:

  • Learn design skills and manufacturing tools and techniques.
  • Learn to apply mathematical and science skills in a hands-on world.
  • Utilize sophisticated laboratory equipment in testing products and processes.
  • Develop computer skills for solving technical problem solving.
  • Often participate in small team projects and sometimes are asked to function as the team leader. Communication and project management skills are very important.

Accreditation:

Accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET
415 N. Charles St.
Baltimore, MD 21201
(410) 347-7700

Admission Requirements:

  • Candidates should have completed NYS Regents Math B with grade 80 or better, or Course III with one additional year of high school mathematics, and be ready to enroll in pre-calculus. If a student does not meet this criterion, he/she will be required to take prerequisites in mathematics.
  • Students who graduate with a two year college degree in a program related area will be evaluated with the objective of awarding maximum credit toward the completion of the (B Tech) degree.
  • Transfer students from community colleges, universities or other institutions of higher learning with some coursework completed will be evaluated on case-bycase bases.
  • Refer to the table of high school course prerequisites for admission.
