Overview

Mission Statement

To prepare graduates for immediate employment and continued educational opportunities through a quality technical and experience-based education.

The Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Technology Department has several programs that prepare graduates to join the workforce as successful technical and management professionals in a variety of industries, including electrical engineering technology, mechanical engineering technology, computer engineering technology, and mechatronics technology.

Because the department maintains active contact with related industries and professional societies and works closely with them to assist graduates in exploring their profession and creating contacts for employment, graduate placement is excellent. Educational opportunities also occur through projects, competitions, and field trips in addition to memberships in several active professional society student chapters.

Laboratories

We have the tools to help you succeed.

Throughout the Engineering Technology building you will find 20 different hands-on labs related to Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Technology. Take a look at the wide variety of resources.

View the Labs

This laboratory contains professional trainer modules that simulate a power system. Each module contains hardware and software installed on its own computer for a full power analysis. A stand-alone power network is a type of power supply network that is closed and has no active lines coupling it to other parts of the electrical power supply grid.

This classroom includes a clean room for advanced miniature device and circuit development. The facility provides state-of-the-art instruments for designing, fabricating, characterizing, and testing of complex micro-scale structures and devices in MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) and Microelectronics.

Equipped with systems which provide experience with the principles of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics.

The Laboratory provides direct experience with computer numerical control (CNC) machines, robotics, and the integration of robotic concepts to automated manufacturing.
