Mechanical Engineering Technology
Bachelor of Science
Manufacturing robotic components, designing machine elements with 3-D printing, operating computer-controlled manufacturing processes, efficient thermal-management systems and failure-analysis simulation are all part of the discipline known as mechanical engineering technology.
Our faculty have a wealth of real-world experience and are leaders in their respective disciplines. You will be mentored by experienced instructors and train in real-life laboratories and settings, gaining a theoretical and hands-on understanding of what it takes to succeed in a career in advanced manufacturing.
The program offers courses that emphasize practical aspects of engineering along with abstract concepts and theories.
Introductory courses courses blend engineering knowledge, scientific principles and technical skills used in modern industries.
- MET 16100 – Introduction To Engineering Technology
- MET 14100 – Materials I
A deeper knowledge is built by integrating theory with extensive hands-on laboratory training, mathematics and science.
- MA 16019 – Applied Calculus I For Technology
- MET 23000 – Fluid Power
Experience deepens with opportunities to applied and industry-centered coursework.
- MET 32900 – Applied Heat Transfer
- MET 38200 – Controls And Instrumentation For Automation
The Senior Design Project provides the opportunity to pursue an idea from conception to design, then execute into a demonstrable project.
- MET 49700 – Senior Project
- MET 46100 – Computer Integrated Design And Manufacturing
National collegiate competitions offer invaluable experiences to advance your education and career. PNW students recently won awards in SAE Baja Event, National Hydraulic Vehicle Challenge and SME 3D Printing Competition.
Our graduates play a wide variety of roles in industry, including product design and development, manufacturing, production, supervision and plant operations as well as high-level management positions.
- Beatty, Nau, Hammond Manufacturing Association Award
- College of Technology Scholarship
- Kaiser Aluminum Scholarship
- Patrick Sharkey Memorial Scholarship

The Mechanical Engineering Technology Bachelor of Science program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET. This ensures that the program is independently reviewed and meets the quality expectation for that profession.
Our favorite thing about the classes that the MET program has to offer would definitely be the professors and staff, they are always willing to go the extra mile to help.
The Mechanical Engineering Technology program has diversified my skill set throughout my collegiate career. This program has taught me fundamental engineering practices as well as the application of them through hands-on experience. With these skills I can apply the engineering design process to solve almost any problem.
