Master the application of basic mechanical engineering principles to launch your career as a qualified technician in industry or research. Students in the Mechanical Engineering Technology Associate in Applied Sciences program take courses in mathematics, natural sciences, and technology. Graduates go on to become process improvement technicians, technical service providers, industrial or technology managers, and research technicians. There is also an option to earn a diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology.

Real-World Education
Students of Mechanical Engineering Technology gain the practical knowledge needed to perform real-world tasks. Coursework also emphasizes the natural sciences — physics, sustainability, and other subjects that students discover to be the very foundation of the world around us.

 

Creativity for the Technically Minded
Mechanical Engineering Technology combines technical skills as well as creativity. Students find that tasks like fabricating mechanical systems, translating information from technical to non-technical environments, and technological problem-solving present the opportunity to exercise both analytical knowledge and innovation.

 

Certified Professional
We are proud to say that our curriculum is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology). Graduates of the Associate in Applied Sciences degree qualify for professional certification by application to organizations such as the American Society for Quality (ASQ), SME, and The National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET).
