Manufacturing Engineering Technology (MfgET)

Manufacturing Engineering Technologists are prepared for a variety of manufacturing positions. These include production engineer, process engineer, process development engineer, tooling design engineer, quality control engineer, and other vital manufacturing tasks.

This is a very hands-on curriculum, with a laboratory included in the majority of technical courses. The Manufacturing curriculum provides education in a variety of areas including manufacturing processes, robotics and automation, industrial controls, manufacturing tool design, computer aided design and manufacturing, engineering materials, manufacturing planning, and quality control. Interns may be exposed to multiple portions of the manufacturing process, including jig and fixture design, analysis, testing, management, and production.
