What is "Mechanical Engineering Technology"?

The Mechanical Engineering Technology program provides the courses needed to begin a career as a technician in the engineering field. As a mechanical graduate, career options are open in a diverse number of fields and companies. Using state-of-the-art laboratory equipment, students will complete relevant and practical coursework taught by knowledgeable faculty. The courses are non-calculus based, and electives can tailor the degree to an individual's needs.

Program Outcomes

  • Use mathematical and scientific skills to analyze product properties including form, function, fit, strength, thermal and fluid properties, etc.
  • Recognize professional ethical and societal responsibilities, respect diversity and demonstrate a commitment to life-long learning.
  • Design in detail individual parts from functional sketches provided by an engineer, and model them using a three-dimensional parametric modeler. (i.e. 3-D CAD)
  • As an interdisciplinary team member, develop products, processes, solve problems, perform project planning, prepare time estimates and make sound ethical decisions.
  • Communicate effectively orally, in writing and graphically on an interdisciplinary team as a design technician using appropriate tools.
  • Document the product/process model using appropriate means (multi-view drawings, pictorials, catalog/manual illustrations, charts/graphs, shaded image, animation, etc.)

Career Opportunities

Graduates enter industry in entry-level positions doing conceptual design, systems engineering, manufacturing, or product research and development. Graduates who complete an ABET-accredited baccalaureate program are eligible to pursue registration as a professional engineer in many states by a process of national examination and documentation of experience.

Transferability

Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.

Additional Information

The Program Educational Objectives are as follows:

  • Graduates have the knowledge and skills necessary to function as a design technician or closely related position in industry.
  • Graduates have the knowledge and skills necessary to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program.
