Few fields of study offer graduates a wider range of opportunities than mechanical engineering technology. Mechanical engineering technicians provide an indispensable link between the professional engineer involved with research, design, and development and the skilled craftsperson who manufactures and assembles the high-technology devices that enable people, companies, and nations to function every day.
Our students learn how to communicate across the industry; produce sketches and drawings used in the manufacture of machines; analyze forces imposed upon mechanical objects; determine appropriate sizes and materials for mechanical parts; and test finished assemblies for proper design. You'll graduate able to calculate the energy requirements of machines and analyze the fluid systems that control them. You'll be able to manage the problem of heat in mechanical appliances and to control mechanisms by the use of electricity and electronics.
Graduates of this program are involved in the design, testing, manufacture, installation, maintenance, distribution, and documentation of mechanical systems and devices. They are also well-prepared for admission to Vermont Tech’s Bachelor of Science in Manufacturing Engineering Technology; Electromechanical Engineering Technology; Renewable Energy Technology; or Business Technology & Management.
The educational objectives for graduates of the Associate of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering Technology program include:
A student with an Associate of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering Technology will be able to:
The program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
