Mechanical Engineering Technology—BS

Mechanical Engineering Technology is a great fit for students who want to take a hands-on approach to mechanical engineering.

Mechanical engineering technologists often bridge the theoretical world of the engineer and the practical approach of the skilled workforce. MET graduates are problem solvers, and they can adapt product designs to the manufacturing process, saving their companies time and money.

As an MET major, you will take classes in product design, manufacturing, high-end CAD, fluid mechanics, materials, and electronics, plus you will learn to operate machine tools such as lathes and mills. You will also be able to choose an area of study that reflects your interests:

  • Computer-aided technology
  • Fluids and power systems
  • Manufacturing processes

And, you will gain the accounting and management skills you’ll need to take on complex projects and complete them successfully within budget.
