Program contact Anthony Ucci, Department Chair and Professor of Engineering and Technology, ext. 2127

Program Goals Statement

This option prepares students as technicians and mechanical designers. Students learn aspects of mechanical engineering such as strength of materials, materials science, fluid systems, computer-aided design and wind power technology.

Student Learning Outcomes

See Learning Outcomes

Program Information

Students gain hands-on experience with mechanical systems (hydraulics, pneumatics, mechanisms and wind power), materials, and computer-aided design.

Students should be in a Math course every semester until they have completed their sequence

Take ENG 101, EGR 172, MTH, and PHY 101 first.

Summer courses will reduce fall and spring semester course loads.
