BS in Mechanical Engineering Technology

The mechanical engineering technology program emphasizes hands-on and problem-solving skills. Students learn how to model, design, develop, test, and supervise advanced mechanical systems and processes. We prepare students with the practical knowledge and skills to enter careers in automotive and manufacturing in general, automation and control, invention, and entrepreneurship.

Below is a sample plan of study. Consult your degree audit for your program requirements.
