Degree: Associate in Applied Science
Plan 24MB

Mechanical engineering technicians are the semi-professional members of the engineer/ scientist/technician team engaged in the design of machines, mechanisms, and other mechanical systems. Assignments may include drafting, designing, research and development, product and materials testing, and supervision. In addition to a broad based background in mechanical design, this program offers training on an industrial CAD system.

To complete an A.A.S., students are strongly encouraged to meet with an Academic Success Advisor to identify coursework that will meet degree requirements.

Note: MET Students please see an advisor to schedule classes for the MET degree as program changes are coming soon.
