Mechanical Engineering Technology, BS


Return to The Division of Physical and Computational Sciences Return to: The Division of Physical and Computational Sciences

The program is composed of core math, science, and engineering technology courses, chosen to provide the breadth and depth necessary to address multidisciplinary problems in the engineering industry.

This core is supplemented with appropriate mechanical engineering technology courses. Finally, students will be encouraged to specialize through the selection of elective courses. The learning experience culminates in a required practicum in the form of a Senior Project Proposal and associated Senior Design Project.

On September 21, 2021 the new Mechanical Engineering Technology, BS was approved for Spring 2022. In order to maintain accurate records the prorgam was added on 10/1/2021.
