Expand Your Experience
Opportunities to apply your knowledge give you a leg up in your career.
College isn’t just about grades–it’s also about the skills and practical experience you build in order to succeed in the workforce. In fact, 91% of employers surveyed by the Association of American Colleges and Universities said these experiences are vital to career success. Our ABET accredited Mechanical Engineering Technology program emphasizes hands-on learning. You'll apply concepts learned in lectures on course projects and test them on laboratory experiments. In your senior year capstone class, you’ll collaborate with local companies on industry projects. Plus, our partnerships with community organizations give you better access to internship, co-op and job opportunities in the region.
Stand Out in an Ever-changing Field
Challenge yourself in an industry that evolves every day.
Major changes are happening within mechanical engineering technology: increased use of automation and robotics in manufacturing, the development of new and smart materials for use in engineering applications, the growing importance of sustainability and energy efficiency. Our program prepares you to adapt to these changes, solve practical engineering problems and enhance critical thinking.
