Curriculum Information Guide
Mechanical Engineering Technology
Dr. Jeff Hung, Chair
Mechanical Engineering Technology Dept.
School of Engineering Technology
Associate in Applied Science Degree
This program is taught in well-equipped laboratories, utilizing the latest high speed PC computers to write analysis and design programs, construct drawings, and machine space age materials for commercial and industrial applications.
The mechanical engineering technology field is rich with opportunities for students with a broad range of interests, motivations and abilities. Graduates are well prepared for positions in four areas: Manufacturing & Production – including tool design, process specification, computerized numerical (CNC), quality control, and materials handling; Mechanical Design – including computer aided design and drafting (CADD), design specification and manufacturability; Material Science – including material specification, corrosion, corrosion control and failure analysis. Graduates are employed as technicians in companies which manufacture equipment used in hospitals, dental offices, computers, automobiles, aircraft, ships, buildings, highways, electronics, heating and air conditioning, prosthetics, physical therapy and bar coding. The power generation industry and heating, ventilating and air conditioning industries also employ our graduates as technicians.
All theory and laboratory courses are based on studies made of graduates in industry and advice from our Industrial Advisory Committee. Graduates are automatically accepted into our Bachelor programs in Manufacturing Engineering Technology, Facility Management Technology or Mechanical Engineering Technology.
Typical Employment Opportunities
Tool Designer Cad Operator
Quality Control Specialist
Computer Aided Designer
