Start Earning Your Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering Technology
The Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology offers students a broad background in engineering technology and the technical skills needed to support the design, testing, and manufacture of products, systems, and devices. Students in the bachelor's degree program are prepared to apply in-depth concepts to the analysis, development, implementation, and oversight of mechanical systems and processes. Career opportunities for graduates of this program include support operations in manufacturing, plant management, product testing, quality assurance, and engineering.
Students may earn the Associate of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology as they work towards the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology. Many of the courses taken toward this degree can be applied toward a related Certificate Program in Manufacturing Technology, allowing students to earn additional credentials as they pursue their degree.
Note: Although some of the courses in this program are available online, the majority of the courses are only available on campus.
The Bachelor of Science Engineering Technology Degree in the Mechanical Engineering Technology Program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET (https://abet.org).
