Manufacturing Engineering Technology, BS

Central to Innovating System Production.

Central’s BS in Manufacturing Engineering Technology provides graduates with solid knowledge and marketable skills in applied engineering. With a solid foundation in the sciences complemented by general technical mechanical and manufacturing courses, as well as manufacturing-specific technical courses, students become adept in engineering graphics, 3D modeling, engineering materials and mechanics, manufacturing processes, instrumentation, hydraulics and pneumatics, electronics and electric power, CAD/CAM, geometric tolerancing, design, and engineering economics.

Students graduate with expertise in state-of-the-art computer tools used by major corporations, and their ability to solve real-world engineering problems makes them highly sought after by industry recruiters.
