Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology

The goal of the Mechanical Engineering Technology program is to provide students with the necessary training and education so they can provide high-level technical support to a variety of industrial, commercial, consulting, and governmental organizations. The emphasis of the program is in the application of scientific and engineering principles. Technical communication in oral and written form is also emphasized.

Graduates are expected to appreciate the ethical and societal responsibilities of a technologist, the concepts of Continuous Quality Improvement, and the continuing impact of globalization of design, manufacturing, and marketing of technical goods and services. Graduates are trained to deal with choice of materials and methods that are safe, environmentally and aesthetically acceptable, and economically competitive.

Typical responsibilities that may be assigned to graduates are the development and evaluation of machines and mechanisms; development, organization and supervision of manufacturing processes and procedures; the instrumentation, control and testing of a process; quality control; technical marketing and sales; design of mechanical systems for heating and cooling; and energy management.

Career Opportunities

Mechanical Engineering Technology is a broad engineering discipline that provides a number of career possibilities. The work of mechanical engineering technologists varies by industry and function and can be found within manufacturing plants, engineering and business service companies, and federal, state, and local government. Some mechanical engineering technologists work in manufacturing, where their responsibilities may include the development and evaluation of machines, design of mechanical systems, facilitating operation and management, quality control, and supervision of workers. These positions can be found in consumer product, transportation equipment, automobile, aircraft, and industrial machinery industries. MET graduates may also work in research where they may build or set up equipment, complete experiments and design prototype mechanical systems. Additional opportunities exist for MET graduates in the growing areas of consulting, technical sales, production operations, and administration.

Should I learn AutoCAD? (Graduate Applied Math student)? | Yahoo Answers

it depends.. but to me i prefer solidwork..
But overall.. you should do on something you really like doing.. it always up to you to decide..
im a mechanical engineering guy and i think anyone with basic engineering knowledge can do it.. experience is the best teacher for me.. you will learn more as you go.. because sometimes it's not just because you excel in methamatic modelling.. it's more to logical design.. i guess.. come on and join the club!
