The Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology offers students a broad background in engineering technology and the technical skills needed to support the design, testing, and manufacture of products, systems, and devices. Students in the bachelor's degree program are prepared to apply in-depth concepts to the analysis, development, implementation, and oversight of mechanical systems and processes. Career opportunities for graduates of this program 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. Students may earn the Associate's Degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology (67 credits) as they work 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.
