The mechanical engineering technology curriculum prepares students to use basic engineering principles and technical skills to design, develop, test, and troubleshoot projects involving mechanical systems. Students are prepared through the study and application of principles from mathematics, natural sciences, and technology and applied processes in mechanical engineering.
Coursework includes mathematics, natural sciences, engineering sciences and technology. Instruction covers principles of mechanics, applications to specific engineering systems, design testing procedures, prototype and operational testing and inspection procedures, manufacturing system-testing procedures, test equipment operation and maintenance, computer applications, critical thinking, planning and problem solving, and oral and written communications.
Graduates of the curriculum will find employment opportunities in the manufacturing or service sectors of engineering technology. Graduates should qualify to obtain occupations such as technical service providers, materials and technologies testing services, process improvement technicians, engineering technicians, industrial and technology managers, or research technicians. Engineering technicians may obtain professional certification by application to organizations such as ASQC, SME and NICET.
