About the Program

The bachelor’s degree in the mechanical engineering technology program is designed to give the student a broad education in the areas of mechanical design, mechanics, stress analysis, thermosciences, and manufacturing. Graduates are in high demand and are employed by manufacturing companies, consulting firms, government agencies, testing laboratories, and other enterprises that require people with strong mechanically oriented backgrounds. Graduates work as mechanical designers developing new products, manufacturing supervisors solving problems of producing these products for performance or quality, as plant engineers improving or maintaining factories, and in technical sales selling these products. The duties of technologists may involve overseeing installation, operation, maintenance, and repair to ensure that machines and equipment are installed and functioning according to specifications; specifying system components; supervising drafters in developing the design of products; testing and evaluating products; and or/developing cost estimates.

*Evening study available.
