Program Goals

  • To prepare students to qualify for entry-level employment as a technician or junior engineer, using industrial test and measurement equipment to evaluate and trouble-shoot the operation of a machine, mechanical processes or structure.
  • To instill in the students a commitment to lifelong learning which fosters in them a desire to transfer credits to a baccalaureate program in mechanical engineering technology.
  • To provide students with a General Education foundation.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

At the end of the program, the graduate will be able to:

  1. Analyze, compare and contrast the physical and chemical properties of different materials with particular emphasis on conditions for appropriate usage in machines and structures.
  2. Analyze the effectiveness of a quality control process with emphasis on continuous quality improvement.
  3. Propose strategies to solve mechanical process or systems problems.
  4. Write and orally present theory, concept or analysis of a complex mechanical project.

Employment Opportunities

  • Junior engineer
  • Machine and equipment tester
  • Production estimator
  • Production technician
  • System planner

Special Program Requirements

Students should have an adequate background in algebra and trigonometry.

Transfer Opportunities

This program transfers to baccalaureate programs in engineering technology at:
