Mechanical Engineering Technology

Dr. Jeff Hung, Chair
Mechanical Engineering Technology Department

School of 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 CNC Turning Center, CNC Milling Center, Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), Vision Controlled Pick and Place Robot, Laser Cutting Machine, Thermal Spray (HVOF) Machine, Rapid Prototyping Machine Hydrogen-Fuel Cell and Biomass Energy Research. Advanced design and manufacturing computer programs such as Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) are run on the latest PC’s. Up-to-date courses in Electronic Packaging Applications, Robotics, Electromechanical Control Systems and HVAC System Design complement traditional courses such as Statics, Dynamics, Strength of Materials, Material Science, Machine & Product Design, Applied Fluid Mechanics, Applied Thermodynamics, and Applied Heat Transfer 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. This program is accredited by the ETAC/ABET, www.abet.org

Graduates will be prepared for a wide range of opportunities in industry, including computer-aided analysis, design, and manufacturing; heating, ventilating and air conditioning system design; and materials and equipment performance testing.
