Manufacturing Engineering Technology
The Manufacturing Engineering Technology program provides graduates with solid knowledge and readily marketable skills in the area of applied engineering. This knowledge and skill will enable them to adapt readily to a wide variety of technical and managerial careers. The Manufacturing ET curriculum provides a foundation in sciences complemented by general technical courses in mechanical and manufacturing disciplines, as well as manufacturing-specific technical courses. The general technical courses, focusing on the practical application of engineering knowledge, include the subject areas of engineering graphics, engineering materials and mechanics, hydraulics and pneumatics, electronics and electric power, CAD/CAM, geometric tolerancing, design and engineering economics. The manufacturing-specific courses cover subjects in manufacturing processes, CNC, robotics, metrology, quality assurance, facilities layout, composites and plastics, design for manufacturing, computer-aided planning and control of production and projects. All technical courses have an extensive practical component conducted in various laboratories where students engage in "hands-on" application of theory. The use of state-of-the-art computer tools used by major corporations is emphasized throughout the curriculum.
Bachelor of Science in Manufacturing Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (TAC of ABET
), 111 Market Place, #1050, Baltimore, MD 21202, tel. (410) 347-7700, (www.abet.org
). As a federation of professional technical societies, ABET is recognized by US Department of Higher Education and internationally accepted by colleges, universities, and industry. ABET accreditation is required by most employers, and certifies the quality of engineering and engineering technology programs.
Based on their ability to apply engineering solutions to real-world problems, our graduates are highly sought-after by industry recruiters. Examples of positions held by Manufacturing Engineering Technology graduates include Manufacturing Engineer, Application Engineer, Tool Design Engineer, Product Development Engineer, Process Development Engineer and Project Engineer. Manufacturing Engineering Technology seniors are eligible to take the F.E. (Fundamentals of Engineering) Exam, which, coupled with the requisite amount of engineering experience is the first step in becoming a Licensed Professional Engineer.
