Manufacturing Engineering Technology, B.S.

Accredited by TAC of ABET

This major develops concepts employed by manufacturing industries to increase productivity, reduce cost, and efficiently use tools and machinery. Emphasis is on the areas of manufacturing, process planning, CAD/CAM, production techniques, and the application of mathematics and computers. Students must complete the coursework in four categories: general education, major requirements, directed electives, and additional requirements.

For all majors a minimum grade of C- is required in all courses in the major, all additional course requirements as well as courses in Study Area IV, Skill Area I, and Skill Area II
