Engineering Technology - Mechanical - Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology
MET majors learn theory and applications in the fields of manufacturing, product design and development, power systems, machinery, and fluid technology. Our students take courses in mechanisms and machines, computer aided modeling, heat transfer, and instrumentation, to name a few. They find employment in the design and testing of tools, engines, machines, and other complex mechanical devices. MET represents one of the broadest engineering technology disciplines. Our MET students also learn by designing and racing mini-baja cars, designing and constructing machines to help our farmers, and even building systems in other countries.
The Mechanical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET, www.abet.org

Concentration: Renewable Energy Technologies
Concentrations are "optional" educational sequences that students may chose to focus on particular areas related to their major. Concentrations may often be done without additional credits by judicious use of electives and other optional course requirements.
Students must complete all university degree requirements, which include: General Education requirements, Viewing a Wider World requirements, and elective credits to total at least 124 credits with 48 credits in courses numbered 300 or above. Developmental coursework will not count towards the degree requirements and/or elective credits, but may be needed in order to take the necessary English and Mathematics coursework.
