Mechanical Engineering Technology

Prepare to enter the mechanical design profession, and help design planes, cars, heavy machinery, and other products. Classes are offered in the evening, so students can work during the day. Students train on industry-standard modeling tools used by most manufacturing companies. They will learn to create drawings, part and assembly models, mechanical design engineering theory and concepts, and how to use material information and mathematics to analyze mechanical designs.
