What is the program about?

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

  • an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in well-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature
  • an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve well-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline
  • an ability to design solutions for well-defined technical problems and assist with the engineering design of systems, components, or processes appropriate to the discipline
  • an ability to function effectively as a member of a technical team
  • an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results

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.
