Mechanical Engineering Technology, AAS
Associate of Applied Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology (292001AAS)
Schrank Hall (South) 123G
Mechanical Engineering Technology is concerned with the design of products and the machines required to manufacture them. Mechanical technicians are needed in all industries, from steelmaking to consumer products such as tires, cars, and home appliances. Mechanical technicians work along with engineers in design, testing, manufacturing, and servicing of the mechanical components and systems found everywhere in industry. The associate degree holder is well qualified to begin working in the various areas of mechanical technology. To guarantee proper sequence and completion of all requirements for graduation, scheduling for the second year of this program should be done through the College of Applied Science & Technology Advising Office, Polsky 301, 330-972-7220.
Courses completed for this degree are transferable to the related Bachelor of Science degree within the program, which is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. Please consult the Program Director or Advising for more information.
- Junior or Assistant Designer – Designs machine elements and/or systems.
- Engineering Aid - Assists the mechanical engineer, a good beginning for the inexperienced graduate.
- Laboratory Technician – Primarily responsible for evaluation of product or process diagnosis. May do field testing (tires, cars, etc.). Specifying materials from the design and processing standpoints.
- Customer Service Technician – Installs and maintains equipment on site. May also serve as sales representative in recommending a machine for a particular application.
- Plant Engineer – Establishes maintenance schedules and applies tool and machine design production process.
Co-op is available on an optional basis in the academic program. To obtain addition information on program benefits, eligibility requirements, or to apply for the program, contact the Career Center at 330-972-7747 no later than the beginning of the second semester of school.
A student is encouraged to check with his/her major department and with the Career Center regarding employment opportunities in the field.
Bachelor Degree Programs
Upon completion of the Mechanical Engineering Technology Associate of Applied Science Degree, a student may proceed to the Mechanical Engineering Technology Bachelor of Science Degree. Please refer to the Mechanical Engineering Technology Bachelor of Science Degree Curriculum Guide for further information. An additional degree option is to proceed to the Bachelor of Organization Supervision Degree.
Transfer to the College of Applied Science and Technology
To be admitted to the College of Applied Science and Technology, a student must have a GPA of 2.0. A student can complete the transfer process through an appointment with an Academic Advisor in the college in which they reside.
The following information has official approval of the Department of Engineering and Science Technology and The College of Applied Science and Technology, but is intended only as a supplemental guide. Official degree requirements are established at the time of transfer and admission to the degree-granting college. Students should refer to the Degree Progress Report (DPR) which is definitive for graduation requirements. Completion of this degree within the identified time frame below is contingent upon many factors, including but not limited to: class availability, total number of required credits, work schedule, finances, family, course drops/withdrawals, successfully passing courses, prerequisites, among others. The transfer process is completed through an appointment with your academic advisor.
Transfer students should consult their Advisor to identify courses that are equivalent.
