Mechanical Engineering Technology


Bachelor of Science | College of Liberal Arts and Applied Science

What is Mechanical Engineering Technology?

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.

What are the features of Miami’s program?

The Department of Engineering Technology, traces its origin to about half a century ago. The courses that are offered in this department (only in Middletown and Hamilton Campuses) are more applied and less math-intensive compared to engineering degrees. Most of the engineering classes are held in the evenings, which provides this opportunity to our student to work full-time during the day. Most of our students are wither already employed, or participate in our co-op program. Close to 100% of our students have a job or have secured a job before they graduate.

What are the special admission requirements, if any?

There are no additional admission requirements for this program.

What courses would I take?

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.

What can I do with this major?

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.
