What is Mechanical Engineering Technology?
Mechanical engineering technology is more than machinery; it is methods, materials, machinery and manpower coming together to solve industrial problems. It is the application of scientific and engineering principles to questions of product development manufacturing, manufacturing processes, quality control, materials, fluid power, heat power, mechanics, design and cost analysis.
The primary goal of the department is to provide all graduates with a solid technical foundation which will enable them to adapt readily to a wide variety of careers and equip them with the desire for life-long learning.
Mechanical engineering technology concerns the generation, transmission and utilization of mechanical, thermal and fluid energy, and the design and production of tools and machines and their products.
The B.S. program in mechanical engineering technology prepares graduates for positions in manufacturing and other technical industries. Graduates of this program fill a wide variety of industrial positions in manufacturing, production, supervision, plant operations, product development, routine design, technical sales and support, facilities engineering and other related industrial careers.
The B.S. program in mechanical engineering technology are Accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ETAC of ABET).
