Our Mechanical Engineering Technology program provides the fundamental knowledge and skills necessary for success in a broad range of technical careers. A balanced curriculum provides a solid foundation in the scientific and mathematical principles on which mechanical design is based, as well as ample hands-on experience in our well-equipped laboratories. To prepare students for the rapid pace of technological change in the workplace, the program seeks to develop the kinds of creative design and problem-solving capabilities which never become obsolete.
Our graduates are placed in jobs ranging from federal, state, local government agencies to engineering design and mechanical consulting firms. Graduates may be employed as mechanical designers, engineering aides, robotics applications and service technicians, plant layout and production planning assistants, metallurgical technicians, materials testing technicians or in other similar capacities. Employers of graduates of this program include IBM, Con Edison, Public Service Gas & Electric Company, Eastman Kodak and the New York City Department of Environmental Protection.
