Curriculum Information Guide
Manufacturing Engineering Technology
Bachelor of Science Degree
This is a four-year program offered by the Mechanical Engineering Technology Department. Students may matriculate on a full-time or part-time basis.Students receive hands-on experience using industrial equipment in the department’s well equipped computer, strength, design, materials, manufacturing, quality control, electromechanical control systems, and robotics laboratories. The department is particularly proud of its Institute for Research and Technology Transfer (IRTT) which contains automated commercial – Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Turning Center, CNC Machining Center, Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), Vision Guided Robotics System, Laser Cutting Machine, Thermal Spray – High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) Machine, Rapid Prototyping Machine Hydrogen Fuel Cell and Biomass Energy Research. Advanced manufacturing computer programs such as: Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) that runs on the latest hardware and software systems. Up-to-date courses in Statistical Quality Control (SQC) and Statistical Process Control (SPC), Electronic Packaging Applications, Robotics and Automation systems, Electromechanical Control Systems and Tooling for Composites complement traditional courses such as Statics, Strength of Material Science providing graduates with a well-balanced and needed background. Students also benefit from the close relationship between the College and local industry through a required senior project that provides the students with valuable integrating capstone experience. The graduate serves as the integrator and implementer of new designs, manufacturing and production operations. He or she provides the applied technical expertise to translate design information into the necessary tools, instruction, procedures, operation sequences and controls to coordinate the cost-effective manufacturing of high quality products.
