Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The Mechanical Technology program is a two-year Associate in Applied Science degree oriented to prepare students for employment in industry as engineering technicians.

Coursework in the Mechanical Technology program includes: engineering documentation, manufacturing processes, machining and inspection techniques, material science, and computer-aided-design. Intrinsic to the educational development of the students, a mathematics sequence, physics, and relevant liberal arts courses are also included.

Program Learning Outcomes

  1. Demonstrate understanding of the principles and theory of manufacturing processes.
  2. Demonstrate knowledge of the basic operation of machine tools.
  3. Apply knowledge of metrology in an industrial setting.
  4. Create and interpret technical drawings and models utilizing current state of the art Computer Aided Design software.
  5. Analyze, set up, and solve statics and strength of material problems.
  6. Demonstrate knowledge of material science as utilized in an industrial setting.
  7. Analyze, set up, and solve various technical math problems using industry-standard math software.
  8. Demonstrate awareness of various technical/engineering disciplines.
  9. Apply technical knowledge of the basic tools related to technical/engineering disciplines.

Notes:


1. Students intending to pursue a 4-year MET degree have the option to take MAT 143  and MAT 161  (Calculus I). Higher mathematics courses may also be substituted, such as MAT 162  (Calculus II) and MAT 264  (Differential Equations). Other variations are also acceptable based upon AET Department Chair approval (after prior review and approval by the MET program coordinator).

2. Students intending to pursue a 4-year MET degree should take PHY 103  or CHE 171 . Students who have completed calculus can take PHY 105 . PHY 101 cannot be used since the SUNY Gen. Ed. Natural Science elective must also be a Liberal Art. Other SUNY Gen. Ed. Natural Science variations are also acceptable based upon AET Department Chair approval (after prior review and approval by the MET program coordinator).

3. Any additional MET course with advisor approval. Other variations are also acceptable based upon AET Department Chair approval (after prior review and approval by the MET program coordinator).
