Mechanical Engineering Technology

  • The Mechanical Engineering Technology AAS degree focuses on technicians for entry in various engineering support activities needed by industry.  Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) students find employment in many types of manufacturing thus creating a wide variety of job possibilities such as an engineering technician, drafter and CAD technician in light to heavy product design industries. Typical employers would be manufacturers of material handling equipment, transportation equipment, medical equipment, steel fabrication and materials testing.

    Included in the scope of many courses is the use of state-of-the-art computer-aided design (CAD) equipment such as AutoCAD for computer drawing, SolidWorks for solid modeling and three-dimensional (3D printing) rapid prototype creation for product development.  These courses give students experience in mechanical design at a technician level.
