Mechanical Engineering Technology

The curriculum in Mechanical Engineering Technology embraces the application of engineering principles to the design, manufacture, installation, and operation of machines and mechanical systems. The program emphasizes basic principles used in the development and production of such devices as tools, machinery (including production machinery), parts fabrication and more. The student receives a strong foundation in the fundamental areas of fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, machine tools and measurement techniques. Classroom lectures are supplemented by laboratory experiments designed to illustrate the application of basic principles in practical devices. Graduates of this program are prepared to work in such fields as machine tools, fluid mechanics, manufacturing, environmental control, and maintenance.

The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) and Student Outcomes (SOs) of the Mechanical Engineering Technology program are as follows:

Program Educational Objectives of the MET Program
•   To produce MET graduates who can become Managers, Supervisors, entrepreneurs, etc.
