CO-OP Opportunities

The Mechanical Engineering Technology program offers a practical curriculum focusing on the application of scientific and engineering principles of manufacturing, manufacturing processes, quality control, materials, and cost analysis. Two programs are offered: mechanical engineering technology and Manufacturing Engineering Technology.

The MET student focuses on product development while the MFET student concentrates on automated manufacturing techniques. This knowledge enables him/her to resolve production problems and prepares him/her to apply the latest technology. A MET/MFET education gives the graduate the flexibility to pursue a wide variety of career options.

Typical MET Co-op Jobs

Mechanical Engineering Technology and Manufacturing Engineering Technology: MET/MFET students in the program must have and maintain a minimum 2.8 GPA. Before entering the program, they must have completed at least two, but not more than four, semesters of academic work including the courses required in the first semester of MET. 

Eligibility in MET

Academic credit for co-op work experience is available in all MET disciplines and is graded on the same scale as other classes and satisfies MET/MFET elective credit. MET/MFET students in the program must have and maintain a minimum 2.8 GPA. Before entering the program, they must have completed at least two, but not more than four, semesters of academic work including the courses required in the first semester of MET.
