Mechanical Engineering Technology

WHAT is mechanical engineering technology?

The Mechanical Engineering Technology program focuses on the application and implementation of engineering theories and conceptual designs.

Graduates of this program should be able to:

  • Apply knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve well-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
  • Design solutions for well-defined technical problems and assist with engineering design of systems, components, or processes appropriate to the discipline;
  • Conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments to analyze and interpret results;
  • Function effectively as a member of a technical team;
  • Apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and identify and use appropriate technical literature.
