Mechanical Engineering Technology
A major in the Mechanical Engineering Technology Program
The careers of mechanical engineering technology graduates take them to a variety of employers (e.g. Rockwell Automation, Fender Guitars, Lockheed Martin, Caterpillar). Yet they have many skills in common: problem-solving, leadership and teamwork. The program focuses on the methods, materials, machinery and manpower necessary to effectively operate in a manufacturing environment. You'll learn how to manage people, machines, and production resources to ensure maximum efficiency and safety.
Areas of emphasis include nano/micro-manufacturing, sustainable energy, green manufacturing and robotics.
