Overview for Product Design Option - Mechanical Engineering Technology BS
Why Pursue a BS in Mechanical Engineering Technology Product Design at RIT?
Gain Real-World Experience: Required cooperative education means hands-on, full-time paid work experience in the industry.
Choice of Dynamic Courses: Advanced course work and elective courses focus on robust design principles, plastic product design, product ideation, product development, innovation, applied finite element analysis, and manufacturing/mechanical systems.
Jobs at Industry Leading Companies: Recent graduates are employed at Apple, Boeing, Corning, General Motors, SpaceX, Tesla, and Toyota.
RIT’s mechanical engineering technology product design option allows for specialized study in all engineering aspects of product ideation, innovation, design confirmation, and design validation.
Product Design Courses
The mechanical engineering technology product design option focuses on the primary areas of developing robust designs that are optimized for manufacturing, customer, and environmental conditions that the product will experience during its entire life cycle. This option is part of the mechanical engineering technology BS degree.
Product design courses begin in the third year of the mechanical engineering technology major. This ensures that you have developed the foundational engineering skills needed for specialization in more advanced courses on the principles of developing new, innovative designs. Courses in product design include:
Fundamental principles on generating and formulating product ideas
Utilizing design for six sigma principles
Developing robust designs
