Program Code: TE

Concentration Code: MEW

Program Goals Statement

This concentration 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.

After BCC

  • Graduates work as mechanical/CAD designers, and wind power, manufacturing, industrial and design technicians.
  • If you plan to transfer to a four-year institution, visit the Transfer Affairs website at www.BristolCC.edu/transfer
