Manufacturing Engineering Technology is an applied engineering field that looks for better ways to manufacture products. This includes reducing cycle times, maintaining quality and keeping costs reasonable.
The field emphasizes engineering problem solving using a hands-on approach rather than the complex analysis that an engineer would typically use. Technologists often work closely with engineers and technicians. In manufacturing the technologist often has the rewarding challenge of working with many departments in the company, from sales to shipping. The curriculum focuses on hands-on experiences to prepare the graduate for an exciting career in the midst of production activity.
