Mechanical Engineering Technology
Mechanical Engineering & Engineering Technology
Program Educational Objectives
Within the first five years after graduation from the TAMU-CC Mechanical Engineering Technology Program, graduates will:
- Exercise effectively technical and hands-on engineering technology skills developed during their studies, leading to increasing career achievement and increasing levels of technical and/or management responsibility in the areas of design, manufacture, sales, installation, operation and/or maintenance of complex, high-value systems.
- Participate in teams involved in the analysis, design, development, implementation, or oversight of mechanical and/or manufacturing systems and processes, eventually assuming leadership roles in the teams.
- Develop continually as practicing engineering technologists through their careers through the solically- and professionally-responsible exercise of lifelong learning skills and a strong work ethic.
The program utilizes input from employers, alumni, and an industry advisory board to continuously improve the quality of education.
Accreditation: The MET program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET (TAC/ABET), http://www.abet.org.
