ABET.jpgMechanical engineering technicians make thermofluid, mechanical and hydraulic systems work and keep them working. These technicians play key roles in many aspects of today’s highly technical environment, especially in the emerging area of green technologies. Learn in the classroom and in hands-on laboratories that use a mixture of actual components and computer simulations. Students may also focus on energy efficiency, alternative and renewable energy sources, and lean manufacturing. Graduates can expect to:

  • Install​ mechanical, hydraulic and thermo-fluid systems
  • Develop and test mechanical systems
  • Evaluate and test products using measuring and diagnostic devices to adjust and repair equipment
  • Set up, install​​ and operate energy generation and use systems.

Students who successfully complete the requirements for this program are awarded the Associate of Applied Science degree in Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology. To accommodate working students, some courses are available during the evening, and students may enroll full or part-time. 

Engineering Technology - Mechanical Engineering Technology graduates are eligible to complete their technical bachelor’s degree at most Ohio universities.​​
