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

Students may need to take any prerequisites needed to enter MATH 1511G Calculus and Analytic Geometry I/MATH 1435 Applications of Calculus I or MATH 1521G Calculus and Analytic Geometry II/MATH 1440 Applications of Calculus II before enrolling in either option of coursework.
*For students wishing to pursue a technical master's degree, MATH 1511G Calculus and Analytic Geometry I and MATH 1521G Calculus and Analytic Geometry II are recommended and will satisfy both the Area II and General Education Elective requirements. Students who take MATH 1435 Applications of Calculus I and MATH 1440 Applications of Calculus II, will need to have an exception made for their degree audit.

Elective credit may vary based on Math course selection, prerequisites, dual credit, AP credit, double majors, and/or minor coursework. The amount indicated in the requirements list is the amount needed to bring the total to 120 credits and may appear in variable form based on the degree. However, students may end up needing to complete more or less on a case-by-case basis and students should discuss elective requirements with their advisor.

Concentrations and Minors are ’optional’ educational sequences that students may choose to focus in particular areas related to their major. Concentrations and Minors may often be done without additional credits by judicious use of electives and other optional course requirements.
