Manufacturing Engineering Technology

Manufacturing Engineering Technology is an applied engineering field that looks for better ways to manufacture products. This includes reducing cycle times, maintaining quality, increasing safety, and keeping costs reasonable.

The field emphasizes engineering problem solving using a practical, hands-on approach rather than the complex analysis that a design engineer would typically use. ET's often work closely with design engineers and technicians. They often have the rewarding challenge of working with many departments in the company, from production to logistics to design & testing. The curriculum focuses on hands-on experiences to prepare the graduate for an exciting career in the midst of production activity.
