A.A.S. Degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology (A40320)
The Mechanical Engineering Technology program is designed to prepare students through the study and application of principles from mathematics, natural sciences, and technology and applied processes based on these subjects.
Course work includes mathematics, natural sciences, engineering sciences and technology.
Mechanical Engineering Technology is a course of study that prepares the students to use basic engineering principles and technical skills to design, develop, test, and troubleshoot projects involving mechanical systems. Includes instruction in principles of mechanics, applications to specific engineering systems, design testing procedures, prototype and operational testing and inspection procedures, manufacturing system-testing procedures, test equipment operation and maintenance, computer applications, critical thinking, planning and problem solving, and oral and written communications. Graduates of the curriculum will find employment opportunities in the manufacturing or service sectors of engineering technology. Engineering technicians may obtain professional certification by application to organizations such as ASQ, SME, and NICET.
NOTE: Upon completion of all requirements, the A.A.S. in Mechanical Engineering Technology is granted by Pitt Community College. The hours at Martin Community College are listed below.
