Mechanical Engineering Technology
Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) concerns the generation, transmission, and utilization of mechanical and fluid energy, knowledge of materials, and the design and production of tools and machines and their products.
The purpose of the MET degree program is to produce graduates qualified to accept jobs such as laboratory technicians, engineering aides, plant maintenance people, layout persons, production assistants, and technical salespersons. With additional experience, promotion to positions such as industrial supervisors, machine and tool designers, technical buyers, production expediters, and cost estimators is possible. Courses in the MET degree program are also very valuable in the upgrade or retraining of adults now in the work force. Students who complete an associate degree in MET may continue for a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology (IT) or Engineering Technology (ET) at the South Bend location.
All courses are 3 credit hours, unless otherwise designated.
