Mechanical Engineering Technology—BS

Mechanical Engineering Technology is a great fit for students who want to take a hands-on approach to mechanical engineering. MET at Michigan Tech is a smart option—here's why:

  • 70 percent of courses have a lab
  • Courses are less theoretical, and more problem-solving based
  • Industry-sponsored Senior Design projects
  • 100 percent job placement rate
  • Average starting salary: $78,000

Mechanical Engineering Technology graduates 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, 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
  • Manufacturing

And, gain the accounting and management skills needed to take on complex projects and complete them successfully within budget.
