Program Educational Objectives

  1. Graduates will acquire strong academic skills in mechanical engineering technology that will make them highly preferred over their peers by the companies that employ them and the academic institutions they go to further their studies in.
  2. Graduates from the MET program will be strong in analytical and problem solving skills in the engineering technology field, including specifying, installing, fabricating, testing, documenting, operating and maintenance of mechanical systems.
  3. Graduates will be well grounded in mechanical engineering technology at the associates of applied science level and will desire to continue their education beyond the associate degree level and have no academic difficulty in doing so.
  4. All graduates will value life-long learning and continue to update their knowledge and skills beyond their formal education.

Student Outcomes

Graduates will:

  1. Demonstrate an ability to apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of mechanical engineering technology to narrowly defined engineering technology activities.
  2. Demonstrate an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to mechanical engineering technology problem requiring limited application of principles but extensive practical knowledge.
  3. Demonstrate an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements, and to analyze, and interpret mechanical engineering technology experiments.
  4. Demonstrate an ability to function effectively as a member of technical team.
  5. Demonstrate an ability to identify, analyze, and solve narrowly defined mechanical engineering technology problems.
  6. Demonstrate an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and nontechnical Mechanical Engineering Technology environments and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature.
  7. Demonstrate an understanding of a need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing development.
  8. Demonstrate an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities, including a respect for diversity.
  9. Demonstrate a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
  10. Demonstrate application of program principles to specification of basic mechanical systems.
  11. Demonstrate application of program principles to installation of basic mechanical systems.
  12. Demonstrate application of program principles to fabrication of basic mechanical systems.
  13. Demonstrate application of program principles to testing and operations of basic mechanical systems.
  14. Demonstrate application of program principles to maintenance of basic mechanical systems.
  15. Demonstrate application of program principles to documentation of basic mechanical systems.
