The Associate's Degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology offers students a broad foundation in engineering technology and the technical skills needed to support engineering activities, particularly in the design, testing, and manufacture of products, systems, and devices. Graduates of this program possess the skills necessary to specify, install, test, operate, maintain, and document basic mechanical systems. Career opportunities include support operations in manufacturing, plant management, product testing, quality assurance, and engineering.

The amount of time it takes for a student to complete this degree will depend upon the individual student's course load. The Associate's Degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology (67 credits) may be earned as a benchmark towards the Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology (126 credits). Many of the courses taken toward this degree can be applied toward a related certificate program, allowing students to earn additional credentials as they pursue their degree.

Note: Although some of the courses in this program are available online, the majority of the courses are only available on campus.
