Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) at Texas A&M University-Central Texas prepares students for rewarding careers with an engineering focus. The program prepares graduates for practice in product improvement, manufacturing, engineering operation, sales, production, and implementation of mechanical systems.

The MET program prepares you to become a skilled engineering technologist who is socially and professionally responsible, equipped with the technical and general communication skills to liaise between engineers, technicians, and the business portions of engineering companies. The MET program engages more hands-on learning while requiring less math and science depth than a traditional engineering degree. This discipline focuses on the applied aspects of science and engineering.
