MET majors learn theory and “hands-on” applications in the fields of manufacturing, product design and development, power systems, machinery – mechanisms, computer aided modeling, heat transfer and fluids, instrumentation, to name a few. The growing demand for modern and complex industrial machinery, machine tools, and computer-controlled processes makes the employment outlook excellent for METs. Positions are available in power generation, machine design, energy conservation, manufacturing operations, project planning, production supervision, plant operations, quality assurance, and technical sales and services.
Mechanical Engineering Technology is concerned with the implementation of current mechanical engineering practices. Mechanical engineering technologists apply basic knowledge of mathematics and engineering science to the solution of design problems and to the operation and testing of engineering and mechanical systems. Individuals can enter the field with either a two-year associates of a four-year baccalaureate degree.
The growing demand for modern and complex industrial machinery, machine tools, and computer-controlled processes makes the employment outlook excellent for METs. The occupational growth rate and starting salaries for METs is good and provides excellent career opportunities!
