Mechanical Engineering Technology, A.A.S.

The Mechanical Engineering Technology A.A.S. program gives students the opportunity to develop skills in mechanical design theory. Lecture and laboratory courses provide an application-based study in engineering technology. Students obtain the scientific, engineering, and technical skills necessary to function as a contributing member of the engineering team. This A.A.S. program is a career degree, preparing students for the workforce after graduation. However, students can opt to transfer to a four-year program rather than start a career, but should confer with advisors and transferring institutions for specific requirements.
