What is Mechanical Engineering Technology?
The Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) program, primarily an application oriented approach, allows students to gain experience with engineering fundamentals while in the classroom. Mechanical Engineering, one of the broadest engineering fields, encompasses analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of various systems. Mechanical Engineering requires a strong understanding of mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, materials science, and energy.
What can I do with a Mechanical Engineering Technology Degree?
Because Mechanical Engineering cover such a broad field, the job market has endless possibilities. To name a few possibilities, Mechanical Engineers can find jobs in designing, researching, developing, and manufacturing test tools, engines, machines, and other mechanical devices.
