Wilks Building in Hamilton Campus

B.S. Mechanical Engineering Technology

This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Program overview

The Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) program enables graduates of mechanical, electro-mechanical, manufacturing and similar associate degree engineering technology programs to complete their bachelor's degree in Applied Science with a major in Engineering Technology, and a Mechanical concentration. 

Courses for the MET program are offered at Miami University's regional locations in Hamilton and Middletown.

Curriculum overview

MET focuses on applied analysis, and design of mechanical components of mechanisms, machines, and systems of machines. Sound engineering principals are applied to the development of industrial and consumer products, usually within the scope of design teams. The program requires a thorough understanding of applied mathematics and the engineering sciences.

Students will develop essential skills needed to apply experimental and analytical methods to the solution of engineering systems type problems. These skills are used to research concepts, and apply modeling methods, to simulate and test working conditions and their impact on the designed systems, and to synthesize different elements to obtain an optimum design of a specific product.

Upon successful completion of the program the student will be awarded the Bachelor of Science in Applied Science degree with a major in Mechanical Engineering Technology.

See Miami University's General Bulletin for core program requirements for this degree.

Career possibilities for graduates

Graduates will find employment opportunities in a diverse spectrum of professional fields such as:

  • Computer Aided Design
  • Computer Aided Analysis, and
  • Computer Aided Manufacturing.

Many mechanical engineering technologists work on team projects within manufacturing-related areas such as testing, analysis, design, and development of industrial and consumer products. Mechanical Engineering Technology graduates are well positioned to be employed in areas that permit rapid advancement into engineering management positions. All graduates of the program are eligible to sit for the engineer-in-training examination within the state of Ohio. Graduates may also continue their education at the graduate engineering technology/engineering levels.
