The Mechanical Engineering Technology curriculum prepares individuals for employment in the field of manufacturing technology. Program provides for advanced manufacturing technologies of robotics. The curriculum emphasizes the theory and training required to effectively augment manufacturing engineers in industry.
Courses include a background in mechanical and related theory and the use of manufacturing and analytical equipment. Industrial standards such as ANSI, OSHA, GD&T, and ISO are discussed. Computer usage for process control and effective communication skills is emphasized. Software training includes AutoCAD, Solidworks & Gibbscam.
Graduates of this curriculum qualify for positions as engineering technicians. Some of the responsibilities include drafting, process specification, tooling selection, automation programming, project facilitation, and supervision. Third-party certifications are available through organizations such as OSHA 10 & 30 Hour Cards, NIMS, NC3, and CRC.
Students enrolled full-time and making satisfactory progress should complete this program in five semesters. Additional time may be needed to achieve minimum requirements in English, Math or Science.
