Manufacturing Engineering Technology Concentration

The Manufacturing Engineering Technology concentration is designed to develop both the technical and analytical competencies required of positions in manufacturing engineering support. Students are trained to become resourceful, technically competent people who can interface between engineering and other personnel within the manufacturing environment. The competencies are acquired through a sequence of courses involving laboratory experiments and additional course work within the math/science curriculum. This program provides practical knowledge of manufacturing processes, the ability to apply the processes, and the ability to plan, coordinate and implement aspects of production projects.

“The manufacturing concentration within the Industrial Technology Department gave me the tools needed to succeed as a manufacturing professional and helped me adjust to a new country and culture.” Luis Orosco, Class of 2012.

In addition to courses in their concentration, all Industrial Technology students receive a well-rounded technical core of classes in electrical systems, metal fabrication, technical drawing, technical analysis, computers in industrial technology, chemistry, physics and the evolution of industrial technology.

Curriculum

Manufacturing Engineering Technology Concentration 120 S. H.

The concentration is designed to develop both technical and analytical competencies required of entry-level positions within manufacturing engineering support. Students are trained to become resourceful, technically competent people who can interface between engineering and other personnel within the manufacturing environment.
The competencies are acquired through a sequence of courses involving laboratory experiments and additional course work within the math/science curriculum. This combination provides the student with the practical knowledge of manufacturing processes, the ability to apply these processes, and the ability to plan, coordinate, and implement aspects of production projects.
