Mechanical Engineering Technology (B.S.)


The online degree in mechanical engineering technology focuses on two integrated areas—design and management. The design area addresses design of mechanical tools, machines, and products. The management area prepares students to manage people, resources, and systems related to mechanical engineering and manufacturing. 

  • Throughout the program, emphasis is given on theory and application of mechanical engineering technology discipline as well as hands-on experience of mechanical design including computer-aided design (CAD).
  • Graduates are prepared to enter careers in the design, installation, manufacturing, testing, evaluation, technical sales, maintenance, or management of mechanical and related systems and processes.
  • The online Mechanical Engineering Technology Degree Program is designed for transfer students. Specific freshman and sophomore courses must have been completed (see admission requirements).
  • Most courses in the mechanical engineering technology major are offered online. The remainder can be completed on the ISU campus—or equivalent courses can be taken at the student's local college or university. On-campus requirements can be managed in consultation with the department's academic advisors. For further information see course delivery.
  • The online Mechanical Engineering Technology Degree Program is open to eligible students in the U.S. (including the District of Columbia and all U.S. territories). The program also is open to students in Canada (all provinces). The program is closed to students residing in countries other than the U.S. and Canada except for U.S. military and State Department personnel and their family members with APO/FPO addresses.
