BS in Mechanical Engineering Technology


Mechanical engineering technology involves understanding how products and machinery work and how to design, make or use them. From water wheels and steam engines to high-performance automobiles, air-conditioned environments and jet aircraft, mechanical engineering technology has changed society for the better.

As a mechanical engineering technology student, you will study the foundations of mechanics, materials and energy. You will learn technical skills such as drafting, CAD, how to use computers, how to test materials and how to make parts. You will learn to apply these principles and skills to the various fields of mechanical engineering technology--such as product and machine design, power generation, utilities and manufacturing--through laboratories and design projects. Full-time students gain valuable industrial experience through the required cooperative education program. The BS in Mechanical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), .
