The Mechanical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET and offers five areas of concentration: Manufacturing Systems, Marine Systems, Mechanical Systems Design, Mechatronics Systems, and Nuclear Systems. Students in these concentrations take common courses in areas such as computer-aided drafting, statistics, strength of materials, dynamics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, automation and controls, and computer solid modeling. Graduates of the program are prepared for a range of technical positions including system design, fabrication, manufacturing, HVAC (heating, ventilating and air conditioning), and mechatronics.
Accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET
Culminates in a senior project that integrates course work with a practical project assignment in the student's area of interest.
Graduates are able to sit for the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) license examinations such as the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) and the Professional Engineering (PE)
Graduates from this major have gone to work at
A course in nontraditional manufacturing processes including ultrasonic machining, abrasive jet machining, waterjet cutting, electromechanical machining, electrical discharge machining, plasma arc machining and chemical milling. Semester project is required. (qualifies as a CAP experience) Prerequisites: MET 200.
The course provides foundations, principles, methods, and tools for modeling and simulation of electro-mechanical components and systems using appropriate modeling techniques. The course is focused on the multi-body dynamics systems, fluid, hydraulic, and electrical systems. Prerequisite: Senior standing.
Methods and rules of dimensioning and tolerancing, calculation of fits, and geometrical tolerances using ANSI-Y14.5M, tolerances of form, orientation, and profile, including flatness, straightness, circularity, cylindricity, angularity, etc. Student work consists of designing and detailing various product drawings. Prerequisites: Senior Standing.
Students entering the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology program in Mechanical Engineering Technology should meet the minimum university admission requirements (Undergraduate Admission)
Students who qualify for regular admission to the University will be accepted into EFD (Engineering Fundamentals Division). Students in EFD may identify a desired degree program or may declare that they are undecided among engineering and engineering technology programs. They will be assigned an intended major code classification, which indicates that they are enrolled and, if appropriate, which is their preferred program.
Students can apply to the MET program during the semester in which they complete the following requirements in the Engineering Fundamentals Division:
Complete ENGN 110 - Explore Engineering and Technology
Complete at least 30 credit hours applicable toward the degree. This is typically after the freshman year of courses
Have an overall GPA of 2.00 or higher
Estimated rates for the 2021-22 academic year. Rates are subject to change. Anyone that is not a current Virginia resident will be charged non-resident rates. That includes international students.
Our enrollment coordinators are ready to help you through the admissions process.
