Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET)

Mechanical Engineering Technology

Mechanical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, Program enrollment and graduation statistics are available here.

Program Educational Objectives:
  • Graduates have the knowledge and skills necessary to function as a design technician or closely related position in industry.
  • Graduates have the knowledge and skills necessary to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program.

Student Outcomes:

  • Use mathematical and scientific skills to analyze product properties including form, function, fit, strength, thermal, fluid, etc.
  • Recognize professional ethical and societal responsibilities, respect diversity and demonstrate a commitment to life-long learning.
  • Design in detail individual parts from functional sketches provided by an engineer, and model them using a three-dimensional parametric modeler. (i.e. 3-D CAD).
  • As an interdisciplinary team member, develop products, processes, solve problems, perform project planning, prepare time estimates and make sound, ethical decisions.
  • Communicate effectively orally, in writing and graphically on an inderdisciplinary team as a design technician using appropriate tools.
  • Document the product/process model using appropriate means (multi-view drawings, pictorials, catalog/manual illustrations, charts/graphs, shaded image, animation, etc.).
