Mechanical Engineering Technology Overview

The AAS degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology provides the theoretical knowledge and practical skillset necessary to become a part of present-day mechanical workforce. The curriculum includes basic math and science courses along with core mechanical courses which start with design and manufacturing. Subsequently, students learn about materials and advanced computer aided design of products. In their second-year students study fluid power and strength of materials based on the foundation of their first-year courses and get their field experience from working in the industry. Finally, they apply their knowledge by working on their department capstone projects. By the end of the curriculum students have the foundation and experience along with the choice to either join the industry or continue their education towards a bachelor’s degree in engineering.
