Mechanical Engineering Technology

You’ll focus on the application and implementation of technology using a hands-on approach to solve manufacturing problems. These skills can be used to not only improve manufacturing capabilities, but also make these processes faster and safer.

Graduates of the manufacturing engineering technology program are uniquely qualified to meet the automation challenges experienced by today’s most demanding industries. As you advance in the MFET program, you’ll discover how a well-planned manufacturing system incorporates people, processes, and technology. Your studies will focus on computer integrated manufacturing systems. They encompass all operations from order entry to product shipment. This can lead to significant cost reductions and better quality.
