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 and computer-aided design.

Program Information

  • Students gain hands-on experience with mechanical systems (hydraulics, pneumatics and mechanisms), 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 may work as mechanical/CAD designers, and 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
