Mechanical engineering technologists are needed throughout the design process of mechanical products to create blueprints, processes for assembly, to streamline production, provide quality assurance, and to inspect and test completed products. Without the work of mechanical engineering technologists, the products designed by engineers could not be produced with the efficiency and accuracy technologists provide.

As a mechanical engineering technologists, you can be hired in a variety of industries and can specialize in a variety of areas, including energy systems, applied mechanics, automotive design, manufacturing, materials, plant engineering and maintenance, pressure vessels and piping, heating, refrigeration, and air-conditioning systems.

Our graduates work for:

  • Boeing
  • Nike
  • Intel
  • Rockwell Collins
  • Specialized Bicycle Components
  • SolarCity

  Graduate Success Information


Students enrolled in the BSMET degree benefit from small, engaged classes. The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering requires 191 credit hours as prescribed in the curriculum map. Students have the opportunity to explore specific career objectives and interests by selecting from MET electives not specifically required for graduation.

Typical coursework includes study in the following areas:

Fundamentals of Mechanical Engineering

Acquire core knowledge in physics, chemistry, mathematics, machining/welding, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, and material science.


Gain skills and expertise in drafting, computer aided design, solid modeling, parametric modeling, and finite element analysis.

Solid Mechanics

Study the motion and deformation of solid materials under the action of forces.

Thermofluids Systems

Learn about heat transfer, gas laws, aerodynamics, and fluid mechanics.
