CIP CODE: 5315.00
The Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) program is designed to prepare students in the applied aspects of engineering. It requires the application of scientific and engineering knowledge combined with practical technical skills and methods in support of engineering activities. The program emphasizes the application of fundamental engineering principles while utilizing up-to-date equipment and techniques.
The MET program at BCC is divided into four major areas: Engineering Materials, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics, Mechanical Drawing and Design – CAD, and Manufacturing Processes and Quality Assurance.
MET is the broadest of all engineering technology disciplines, allowing graduates to pursue careers in many segments of industry. The program prepares graduates for their profession by providing a background in the major areas of Mechanical Engineering Technology; but also allows students to continue towards a Baccalaureate Degree.
The Mechanical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ETAC/ABET).
SEQUENCE OF COURSES: This model is a two-year course schedule for students meeting all program requirements and deciding to pursue full-time study. Schedules will be redesigned for those requiring preparatory courses or those deciding to pursue part-time study.
Program Learning Outcomes:
Graduates of the Mechanical Engineering Technology program will demonstrate:
- The technical ability, with substantial independence, to manufacture, analyze and test mechanical components and systems
- The technical capability to participate in the design of mechanical components and systems.
- The readiness and social skills necessary for team achievement of organizational goals.
- The ability to continue their education and successfully complete a Bachelor degree.
- An understanding of the interrelationship of the graduate, the organization, and society, and an awareness of the issues affecting that relationship.
