The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology is a great fit for students who want to take a hands-on approach to mechanical engineering.
Mechanical engineering technology graduates often bridge the theoretical world of research engineering 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.
MET at Michigan Tech is a smart option—here's why:
- Courses are less theoretical, and more problem-solving based
- Senior Design projects are industry-sponsored
- MET graduates have a high placement rate
As an MET major, you take classes in product design, manufacturing, high-end CAD, fluid mechanics, materials, and electronics, plus 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 engineering
- Fluids and power systems
