Mechanical Engineering Technology A.A.S.

A40320

The Mechanical Engineering Technology curriculum prepares graduates for employment as technicians in the diversified mechanical and manufacturing engineering fields. Mechanical Engineering technicians assist in design, development, testing, process design and improvement, and troubleshooting and repair of engineered systems. Emphasis is placed on the integration of theory and hands-on application of engineering principles.

In addition to coursework in engineering graphics, engineering fundamentals, materials and manufacturing processes, mathematics, and physics, students will study computer applications, critical thinking, planning and problem solving, and oral and written communications.

Graduates of the curriculum will find employment opportunities in the manufacturing or service sectors of engineering technology. Engineering technicians may obtain professional certification by application to organizations such as ASQC, SME, and NICET. Students should consult their a d visor for information about course scheduling.

Upon successful completion of this program, the student should be able to:

  • Gather, evaluate, select and organize information and document sources appropriately (GE I, 4)
  • Define the steps applied to the design process
  • Apply fundamental orthographic projection techniques to a hand sketch of a simple part
  • Use print and electronic information and technology in an ethical and responsible manner (GE III, 1)
