Mechanical Engineering Technology

Bachelor of Science


Mechanical engineering technology focuses on the applied aspects of science and engineering to prepare graduates for practice in product improvement, manufacturing, engineering operation, sales, production, and implementation of mechanical systems. The goal of the Mechanical engineering Technology program is to prepare well educated, highly skilled, and socially and professionally responsible engineering technologists from a diverse population of students to create productive and rewarding careers.

Students whom attend this program will engage in applications-oriented design, manufacturing, and management of mechanical systems, including all technical and economic factors influencing these systems.  Students will also be able to use appropriate theory, mathematics, and computational technology to analyze and solve applied engineering problems. The program will teach how to communicate and function effectively as an individual and as a team member in a professional environment, as well as pursue lifelong learning and continuous improvement of their knowledge and skills in diverse industries with the highest professional and ethical standards.
