Description

The Mechanical Technology Program introduces the student to the principles, materials, and equipment of mechanical technology. Emphasis is placed on drafting, design, and an understanding of basic machine components.
Graduates of the program find employment as drafter, engineering assistants, technicians, and technical salespersons.
(Housed in the Engineering Technologies Department)

Program Learning Outcomes

1) Sketch design ideas and concepts by hand using proper scaling and perspective
2) Generate complete and fully dimensioned orthographic projection drawings to proper standards (i.e. ASME Y14.5, ISO)
3) Create solid model CAD files with the requisite design intent built-in
4) Use measurement tools to inspect and record dimensions of parts
5) Analyze data to objectively make technical decisions using basic statistical analysis
6) Apply fundamental technical calculations required to determine forces and stresses within mechanical systems
7) Apply knowledge of material properties and manufacturing processes to appropriate decision-making
8) Use industry standard computer applications (MS Excel, MathCAD, SolidWorks, etc.) for design, analysis or technical decision making
9) Discuss knowledgeably subject matter related to technical fields other than Mechanical Tech
10) Communicate effectively in various modes
11) Demonstrate a professional attitude, which includes such behaviors as punctuality, attendance, reliability, neatness and organization
