Program Description

The Program – Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET)

Successful candidates in the MET program will obtain the skills required to be employed in both engineering and/or manufacturing or production environments.  Theses technical skills include engineering design, CAD, testing and measurement, troubleshooting and repair of equipment, process evaluation and optimization, materials selection and part fabrication, and machining.

Your Degree

Two-year full-time degree schedule; mixture of core engineering courses along with physics, communications, and math studies; program can be completed on a part-time basis.

What you’ll learn

  • Read, interpret and create engineering drawings, designs, and schematics which meet current ANSI standards and functional requirements
  • Demonstrate the ability to fabricate a component or assembly using CAD/CAM/CNC methods which meet dimensional and tolerance requirements as specified by drawings and designs
  • Analyze and troubleshoot mechanical and electro-mechanical equipment such as mechanical drives, hydraulics, and robotic systems and provide valid workarounds or solutions using a systematic problem-solving approach based on fundamental engineering principles
  • Demonstrate fundamental knowledge of manufacturing processes used in industry and their suitable use or limitations for a given application
  • Analyze material behavior in a variety of manufacturing operations and select materials for mechanical parts and structures based on in-service loading
  • Use data analysis, statistic, and software for design and process improvement
  • Demonstrate adherence to safety while working in a manufacturing or production environment


An internship is a learning experience that integrates academic skills with workplace experience.  Students in Engineering Technologies can earn college credit, make valuable professional contacts, and link their classroom studies to real-world workplace challenges.  Please see the department dean or an academic advisor for details.
