Mechanical Engineering Technology Program Education Outcomes
By successfully completing our mechanical engineering technology program, you'll gain knowledge and skills including the ability to:
- Apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline.
- Design systems, components or processes meeting specific needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline.
- Apply written, oral and graphical communication in broadly defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature.
- Conduct standard tests, measurements and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes.
- Function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
After earning the B.S. in Mechanical Engineering Technology, it is expected that graduates will:
- Secure and maintain employment in appropriate MET positions industry-wide and perform all functions assigned to an mechanical engineering technologist.
- Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering technology and computing to identify, analyze and solve problems pertaining to design, development, and implementation of electronic systems.
- Exhibit a desire for life-long learning through higher education, technical training, teaching, membership in professional societies and other developmental activities and will achieve positions of increased responsibility through these activities.
- Demonstrate high levels of oral and written communication skills, critical thinking, responsibility and ethical behavior, teamwork and appreciation for diversity and leadership in their careers.
