Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology

Mission

The mission of the Mechanical Engineering Technology program is to provide a world class engineering technology education that combines engineering physics and mathematics principles with materials science to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems through hands on projects and active learning experiences. It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering branches.

Program Educational Objective

  • Investigate concepts, principles, and tools that provide students with a sound technical base in various sectors of Mechanical Engineering Technology-related industries;
  • Examine various manufacturing processes and their effects on properties of engineering materials;
  • Analyze machine elements and mechanical mechanisms with application to mechanical system design, development, and service;
  • Discuss electrical circuits, electrical power and machinery, industrial automation and control; and
  • Explore other Mechanical Engineering Technology-related topics such as thermodynamics, fluid power, heat transfer, and their applications. 

Student Outcomes

  1. an ability to select and apply knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly defined engineering technology activities;
  2. an ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives;
  3. an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes;
  4. an ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives;
  5. an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team;
  6. an ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly defined engineering technology problems;
  7. an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
  8. an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
  9. an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity;
  10. a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context; and
  11. a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
