The student learning outcomes for the degree are as follows:

  • An appropriate mastery of the knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of the appropriate ET program.
  • An ability to apply current knowledge and adapt to emerging applications of mathematics, science, engineering and technology.
  • An ability to conduct, analyze and interpret experiments and apply experimental results to improve processes.
  • An ability to apply creativity in the design of mechanical systems, mechanical components or manufacturing processes.
  • An ability to function effectively on teams.
  • An ability to identify, analyze and solve technical problems in mechanical engineering and engineering technology.
  • An ability to communicate effectively.
  • A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in lifelong learning.
  • An ability to understand professional, ethical and social responsibilities.
  • A knowledge of and respect for diversity, contemporary societal and global issues.
  • A commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.

This program prepares graduates with knowledge, problem-solving ability, and hands-on skills to enter careers in analysis, applied design, development, implementation, manufacturing, testing, technical sales, evaluation, or oversight of mechanical systems and processes.

To earn the B.S. with a major in mechanical engineering technology, you must fulfill the requirements of IPFW (see Part 8 ); the College of Engineering, Technology, and Computer Science (see Part 4 ); and the A.S., and complete the following courses, earning a grade of C or better in those courses that serve as prerequisites:

  • Technical expertise in engineering materials, statics, dynamics, strength of materials, fluid mechanics, fluid power, thermodynamics, heat transfer, and electronic control.
  • Technical expertise in manufacturing processes, mechanical design, and computer-aided engineering graphics, engineering materials, automatic controls, industrial operations with added technical depth in manufacturing processes, computer-aided engineering graphics, mechanical design and engineering materials.
  • Expertise in applied physics having an emphasis in applied mechanics plus fundamentals of electricity in physics and inorganic chemistry.
