Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET)
Indiana State University’s bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering technology (MET) prepares individuals for technical and technical management positions such as engineers, technical managers, and technologists. The program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
MET focuses on engineering design (mechanical design), analysis, management, and manufacturing. Throughout the program’s curriculum, emphasis is placed on computer-aided design (CAD) and its integration with other computer-aided engineering (CAE) tools or technologies (e.g. computer-aided manufacturing, rapid prototyping). Students develop hands-on experience and technical problem-solving skills with state-of-the-art CAD/CAE technologies. While the students focus on the design of mechanical products and systems, they also study management aspects of engineering design, in preparation to manage people, resources, and systems related to design and manufacturing. The program faculty has experience in both teaching and applied research in the subject area, and industry work experience that contributes to the quality of a laboratory-based instruction.
