Mechanical Engineering Technology graduates find a wide range of opportunities for employment in design, research and development, testing, and manufacturing. The work done by Mechanical Engineering Technologists varies widely. Interfacing computers and machines is a rapidly growing area of employment. This involvement with robotics and automation is having an impact on most mechanical systems. New materials such as high strength ceramics and polymers, fiber reinforced plastics, and new bonding agents are growing in importance, and their applications will offer many interesting and fulfilling careers.
The length of time required to complete program requirements will depend upon the number of classes transferred into program requirements, the number of classes taken per term, and the number of terms completed in a year.
