Mechanical Engineering Technology

Dr. Jeff Hung, Chair
Mechanical Engineering Technology Department

School of Engineering Technology


Bachelor of Science Degree

The Bachelor of Science degree program in Mechanical Engineering Technology is designed to provide students with a foundation of knowledge and hands-on experience that are required and utilized by the industry. The program offers 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 solid foundation of the field. The program also offers numerous technology-based and practical courses such as Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Computer Aided Engineering (CAE), Computer Numeric Control (CNC) Machining, Quality Control, Electronic Packaging Applications, Electromechanical Control Systems, Robotics, and HVAC Systems providing students with a well-balanced and needed background in Mechanical Engineering Technology. These technology based courses are delivered through our state-of-the-art laboratories and the Institute for Research and Technology Transfer (IRTT). Students also benefit from the required senior project that provides the students with valuable integrating capstone experience.

This program is ideal for high school graduates and Mechanical Engineering Technology  associate degree graduates who wish to enter careers in the design, installation, manufacturing, testing, technical sales, maintenance, HVAC, and other endeavors typically associated with mechanical components and systems.

This is a four-year program. Students may matriculate on a full-time or part-time basis. This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.
