Mechanical Engineering Technology

The associate in science degree Mechanical Engineering Technology (ASMET) is a two year program that applies established scientific and engineering knowledge and methods to the field of machines and manufacturing. This program is ideally suited to the person who is capable of understanding theoretical principles, but prefers to get involved with mechanical systems and processes.

The program prepares graduates with knowledge, problem solving ability, and hands-on skills to enter careers in the design, installation, manufacturing, testing, evaluation, technical sales, and/or maintenance of mechanical systems. A graduate mechanical engineering technician can select employment from many areas, such as manufacturing, maintenance, modification of design, power generation, technical laboratory operation, technical sales, testing and analysis, and field engineering services.

The AS Mechanical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET,
