Manufacturing Engineering Technology, Design & Technical Graphics Option (Bachelor of Science, B.S.)

Manufacturing Engineering Technology is the profession in which an understanding and application of a broad range of technologies is necessary for production and control of manufacturing processes. Manufacturing includes methods of production of industrial commodities and consumer products. The manufacturing professional must be able to plan, design, and implement sequence of operations using current technologies to produce products at competitive prices. Four-year B.S. degree graduates qualify for jobs related to production, productivity improvement, and process design. They also qualify for supervisory and managerial positions in plant engineering.

The Design & Technical Graphics option in the B.S. MET program focuses on the computer applications, especially computer aided drafting and design, in industries. It is created to meet the business  and industrial trend of more and more computer applications in production.

Program Educational Objectives (BS MET)

  1. Possess the general knowledge of manufacturing industry such as concepts, terminologies, basic and standard problem-solving techniques.
  2. Demonstrate the ability to analyze and implement production systems in a manufacturing setting.
  3. Function effectively in a group environment in the industrial workplace through demonstration of technical and communication skills.
  4. Understand professional, ethical, and social responsibilities.
  5. Possess strong background knowledge and skills in computer aided drafting and design in industries.

Students who choose this bachelor degree program will have no more than 6 years from admission or subsequent declaration to meet the requirements listed below. If certification, accreditation or statutory requirements change and additional requirements become effective during this time, the new requirements take precedence.
