Engineering Technology

Mechanical and Manufacturing Concentration

The manufacturing-mechanical engineering technology concentration stresses on the design, development, testing, manufacturing, and integration of industrial machinery, consumer and biomedical products, CNC (Computer Numerical Control), prototyping machinery, and similar equipment. The concentration includes study in computer graphics, statics, dynamics, stress analysis, thermo-fluid system analysis, industrial robotics and mechatronics, and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) tools, including instrumentation and testing procedures and integration of various industrial systems.

During the first three years, students in engineering technology take electrical, mechanical, computer, and industrial courses to get a solid, multidisciplinary, systematic background in different engineering fields. Students are required to complete general and concentration engineering technology courses, technical electives, and free elective courses that permit students great latitude in tailoring the program of study to match their career goals.

Writing-Intensive Course Requirements

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.

A "WI" next to a course in this catalog may indicate that this course can fulfill a writing-intensive requirement. For the most up-to-date list of writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Writing Intensive Course List at the University Writing Program. Students scheduling their courses can also conduct a search for courses with the attribute "WI" to bring up a list of all writing-intensive courses available that term.
