Program Description


A state-of-the-art Computer Aided Design (CAD) lab and fully equipped mechanical laboratory permit the students to combine both the theoretical and practical aspects of the design as well as the manufacturing of a product.

Graduates of our program are employed in well-paying positions throughout the county, state, and nation. They include engineering aides; mechanical and structural designers; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning technicians; quality assurance technicians; service engineers; and computer-assisted drafters.

Because the curriculum combines writing and reading skills with the humanities and social sciences, our graduates are well-rounded individuals who may transfer to a host of four-year institutions offering the Bachelor of Mechanical Technology. By choosing the proper electives, graduates also may transfer to those institutions offering a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering.
