Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering Technology

If you want to take theoretical engineering ideas and translate them into actual products and solutions, then the Bachelor of Science in Technology in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering Technology degree program is for you. This program prepares students for a dynamic career in today’s industrial society. Graduates are industrial leaders who manage people, equipment and production resources.

The mechanical and manufacturing engineering technology program has a hands-on curriculum that introduces students to an industry-oriented cooperative education. This allows students the opportunity to work as a member of a team while gaining transferable skills and research knowledge.

Specializations

Mechanical Design

Provides skills for career success in designing and building mechanical systems and products in a wide range of industrial settings. Technical areas of work encompass hands-on use of CAD/CAM, analysis, design, fabrication, engineering process control and process improvement.

Quality Systems

Takes design engineer’s concept to help to translate them into actual production of manufactured goods. Due to the rapidly changing nature of modern manufacturing, graduates can expect to find diverse and challenging opportunities in areas that extend far beyond the traditional manufacturing environment.
