This degree combines studies of mathematics, computer science, physics and engineering technology. The mechanical engineering technology curriculum includes courses fundamental to mechanical engineering technology with an emphasis on applications.
Before graduation, each student will participate in a design project or an internship in industry to gain industrial experience during his or her academic career before employment. The emphasis of this program is the application of engineering principles to the solution of practical problems. MET graduates are in great demand and are employed in a variety of interesting, high-tech careers throughout the state and region. Employment opportunities are available in mechanical design, industrial engineering technology, industrial management, manufacturing, CAD, applied research and sales and service.
The EWU Mechanical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET, http://abet.org.
Learn to convey your ideas with today's powerful drafting and parametric modeling software. Study concludes with the creation of actual prototype from the rapid prototyper.
These courses build on concepts introduced in the general physics series and form the basis for more detailed exploration and problem solving in the realm of mechanical engineering.
Become familiar with industry standards for technical metals and other materials. Learn the fundamentals of metalworking tools and procedures and apply your knowledge to the study of machine elements and components.
Utilize actual industrial robots in the robotics laboratory to learn automated industrial systems programming and implementation. Coursework includes group projects initiated, designed and managed by students.
The Mechanical Engineering Technology Program requires that students choose to emphasize, through a series of elective courses, either a manufacturing or design focus to fill out their studies.
