Mechanical Engineering Technology, A.S.
The Mechanical Engineering Technology program will prepare you to be technicians and designers for employment in industry through specialized training and education in statics, machine design, fluid dynamics, and thermodynamics, with an emphasis on the design, manufacturing, testing and development of various products, machines and systems. You will have hands-on education and training in state-of-the-art laboratories, on the most sophisticated equipment available. You will be prepared to work alongside engineers in research, sales, or manufacturing industries, and be highly marketable for many different types of industries. Currently nationwide trends indicate that the number of mechanical job openings far exceeds the number of graduates. This program will prepare you for transfer to four-year institutions, especially four-year engineering technology programs.
The Mechanical Engineering Technology program has a co-op option that allows the student to work while substituting the work experience for a technical elective. Many local industries are actively seeking and obtaining the Mechanical co-op student.
