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
