About this Program

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (BSET) degree program in Manufacturing Engineering Technology (MfgET) offers courses at the senior level specializing in manufacturing systems. Students in this program take common courses in areas such as computer-aided drafting, manufacturing processes, statics, strength of materials, dynamics, and automation and controls. The program culminates in a senior project that integrates coursework with a practical project assignment in the student's area of interest. To satisfy the upper-division general education requirements, students are required to complete a minor within the College of Engineering and Technology or the College of Sciences. Graduates should be qualified for application positions in manufacturing systems design, development and manufacturing, maintenance, field operations, and various other technical functions.
