Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET)
Meet Chad Kingsolver.
Focus on the methods, materials, machinery and manpower needed to solve real-world problems in industry. As a mechanical engineering technology major, you'll learn how to manage people, machines, and production resources. Likewise, through classes and laboratory experience, you will gain insights into the manufacturing production and design processes.
- Focuses primarily on the applied aspects of science and engineering
- Prepares graduates for careers in product improvement, industrial processes and plant operations
- Faculty combine extensive industrial experience with their interest in applied research projects that can give undergraduate students experience in solving real-world technical problems
- Areas of emphasis include nano/micro-manufacturing, sustainable energy, green manufacturing and robotics
Your classes will address how scientific and engineering principles can be applied to a wide range of topics:
- product development
- manufacturing and manufacturing processes
- process control
- quality control
- fluid power and heat power
- product/process design
- cost analysis
This major is also offered at the following statewide locations:
- Computational analysis and computer tools
- Production design and specifications
- Applied strength of materials
- Composite tooling engineer
- Design engineer
- Development engineer
- Head engineer
- Quality engineer
- Advanced manufacturing
- Energy and sustainability
In addition to over 50 programs approved for CoT students, one program, specifically for MET credit, is a six-week summer program at the University of New South Wales in Australia, “Energy Tomorrow: An Engineering and Management Perspective.”
