Mechanical Engineering Technology

 

Program Description
The demand for trained mechanical engineering technicians, knowledgeable in both the theory and application of engineering principles, continues to grow. These professionals serve as the link between engineers and craftsmen, and the Mechanical Engineering Technology Program provides their foundation.

The objective of the Mechanical Engineering Technology Program is to train professionals capable of assuming responsible positions in drafting, CADD, CMM, geometric tolerancing, manufacturing processes, material testing, fluid power, heat power, refrigeration, stress analysis, machine design and instrumentation as well as being able to pursue their education toward a bachelor's degree.

Comprehensive in nature, the Mechanical Engineering Technology Program offers an in-depth study of mechanical engineering technology courses as well as liberal arts and social science courses. Analytical mechanics, strength of materials, fluid mechanics and electricity for mechanical equipment are among the subjects covered in the curriculum. The Mechanical Engineering Technology courses are enriched with laboratory experiences. The program is completed with composition, literature, ethics and social science courses, which help students to better communicate and to participate in meaningful interpersonal relationships.

Graduates of the program either assume positions as a mechanical technician or continue their educations toward a bachelor or advanced degree in engineering or technology. Graduates of this program are capable of taking certificate exams such as the National Institute for Engineering Technicians exam and exams offered by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers.
