Mechanical Engineering Technology Associate Degree
Every mechanical device you use, from your hair dryer to your car’s transmission, started as a concept. Through the innovative processes of design, development, building and testing, these concepts became creations. Mechanical engineering technicians help research, design, develop, manufacture and test tools, engines, machines and other mechanical devices. It is, in fact, one of the broadest engineering disciplines.
The Mechanical Engineering Technology program at TSTC combines manufacturing methods and processes with engineering mechanics and design. You can learn to design, develop and build working prototypes of new products using the latest tools and techniques – learning that has real applications and plenty of job opportunities in the industry. And students get instruction in state-of-the-art computer applications on some of the college’s most powerful computer systems.
Through a unique partnership with HAAS Automations, MET has established a regional training facility that enhances the learning experience. In this facility, you can learn Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) programming and operations on the latest equipment. Overall coursework emphasizes computer integration of manufacturing processes using PC-based Computer-Aided Drafting/Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) applications.
