The following are the Program Educational Objectives for the Baccalaureate degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET):
Program Educational Objective 1:
- The program will prepare graduates that are prepared for successful careers in the areas associated with the fabrication, testing, documentation, operation, sales, maintenance, analysis, applied design, development, implementation, and oversight of mechanical systems.
Program Educational Objective 2:
- The program will prepare graduates who advance in their careers and continue their professional development.
Program Educational Objective 3:
- The program will prepare graduates who understand the overall human context in which engineering technology activities take place.
Growing demand for modern and complex industrial machinery, machine tools, robotics, and computer controlled processes require highly qualified technologists for their development, manufacture, use, and support. MET students usually are interested in mechanical activities, and often enjoy working on vehicles and machines.
