Mechanical Engineering Technology is part of the School of Polytechnic . Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) prepares students for the application of engineering principles and technological developments for the creation of useful products and/or production machinery. The MET program teaches you how to analyze and design machine systems used in many industries, including automotive, biomedical, aerospace, robotics, steelmaking, HVAC, consumer products and etc.
MET A.S. Program Objectives:
- To prepare graduates with knowledge, problem solving ability and hands-on skills to enter careers in installation, manufacturing, testing, evaluation, computer-aided design, or maintenance of basic mechanical systems.
- To develop a respect for diversity and a knowledge of contemporary professional, societal, and global issues with an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities.
- To prepare graduates for both immediate employment and continuation in the BS program.
Student outcomes for the degree are as follows:
an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve well-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
an ability to design solutions for well-defined technical problems and assist with the engineering design of systems, components, or processes appropriate to the discipline;
an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in well-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature
an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results; and
an ability to function effectively as a member of a technical team.
- The Mechanical Engineering Technology degree is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
- POLYTECHNIC programs emphasize practice-based learning via hands-on laboratory applications using state-of-the-art equipment. Some courses are available through online, distance, and hybrid learning, however many incorporate an on-campus laboratory element.
Declaring This Major:
Students interested in declaring Mechanical Engineering Technology as their major may do so in one of two ways:
1. On their application when they first apply to the university.
2. After meeting with a faculty advisor, a change of major can be declared.
