Mechanical design engineering technology graduates pursue careers in the design of machinery and industrial consumer products. Related areas of employment include technical sales, automotive component design, manufacturing, and performance testing of machines and products. Graduates will be able to use industry accepted codes and specifications such as ANSI-ASME, AGMA, AWS, AISC, ASTM, and ABMA to complete mechanical analysis and create working industrial drawings. This will be accomplished using the latest two-dimensional CAD and three-dimensional solid modeling software packages. Machinery will be animated for motion analysis, and strength calculations will be performed. Excel will be used to perform parametric mechanical analysis for calculations to determine the size and dimensions of components and parts. The program provides general mechanical engineering technology fundamentals with an emphasis in the design and development of products and machines.
The mechanical design engineering technology program is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. [TAC/ABET, 111 Market Place Suite 1050 Baltimore, MD 21202; (410) 347-7700, Fax: (410) 625-2238; email: accreditation@ABET.org; website: http://www.ABET.org].
A laptop computer is required for students entering the mechanical design engineering technology program. Laptop specifications are available at www.alfredstate.edu/required-laptops.

PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
Program educational objectives were established with the assistance of the Industrial Advisory Committee and are reviewed periodically. The mechanical design engineering technology program produces graduates who:
DIRECT ENTRY INTO BACCALAUREATE DEGREE PROGRAM
Alfred State mechanical design engineering technology graduates may enter directly into either the mechanical engineering technology BS or technology management BBA degree program.
Mechanical design engineering technology is a 2 + 2 program in which the graduate, at the successful completion of two years of course work, earns an AAS degree. The graduate can start his or her career in industry or continue directly into the third and fourth years to complete a bachelor of science in mechanical engineering technology here at Alfred State. The direct continuance of studies into the third and fourth years enhances the graduate's skills in a wider selection of mechanical engineering technology courses. The graduate improves and expands career opportunities with a special emphasis in mechanical design.
The graduate is prepared for entry level careers in the industrial environment such as:
Internships are possible with many industries through Career Development located in the Hunter Student Development Center and may be eligible for technical credit.
Employment and transfer rate of 100 percent – 100 percent are employed.
