Mechanical Engineering Technology - Program Description
Graduates of Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) work in a wide range of industries with a broad array of career opportunities. From manufacturing (CNC Machinist) and construction to equipment testing and power generation, employment opportunities exist in CAD Design, product/system testing, quality improvement, and technical services support. The MET program is appropriate for individuals who like hands-on experience, enjoy technology, and aspire to the challenge of experimentation and problem solving.
Students In This Major
- Practice and demonstrate hands on manufacturing skills related to machining, design and drafting, fluid power, mechanical design and electricity.
- Develop core skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics to commence their career immediately upon graduation or to continue with the pursuit of a baccalaureate degree.
- Apply computer skills to design, interpret and analyze data, solve problems and prepare reports/presentations for professional communications.
- Apply the scientific and technical knowledge to design, test, troubleshoot and improve machines, tooling, processes and information flow that serve the manufacturing industry.
- Refer to the table of for admission.
- Students must be qualified to enter Pre- Calculus Algebra (MATH 123)
Students who do not meet the recommended high school math prerequisites may be admitted; students may be admitted into Mechanical Engineering Technology upon completion of this prerequisite.
