The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology curriculum requires the successful completion of 128 credits. It includes mathematics, basic sciences, English composition and communications, humanities and social sciences, and technical courses. The curricula consist of an integrated sequence of undergraduate courses emphasizing the application of engineering and scientific knowledge, methods, technology and technical skills appropriate to the discipline.

The program prepares students to apply the principles of mechanics and energy to the design, manufacturing and operation of machinery and other mechanical devices. Employment opportunities for mechanical engineering technologists are in power generation, process control, production supervision, plant operation, manufacturing, quality assurance and reliability testing, test and field services, automotive industry, heating, ventilating and air conditioning.

Educational Objectives

The B.S. in Mechanical Engineering Technology program will produce graduates who:

  • Enter into and advance their careers in the analysis, applied design, development, implementation and management of mechanical systems and processes, including those used in fields such as mechanical design, electro-mechanical devices and controls, manufacturing processes or applied thermal sciences.
  • Continue their formal education leading to professional licenses or advanced degrees in science, technology or business.
  • Continue to conduct themselves as both responsible professionals and global citizens, who are aware of and understand ethical issues and societal needs and problems.

Student Outcomes

Each mechanical engineering technology graduate will demonstrate the following attributes and achievements as required by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET upon or before graduation:

  • An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
  • An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
  • An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
  • An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes; and
  • An ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
