Additional Details

Design Machines and Processes

Mechanical Engineering is one of the broadest and one of the most popular fields of engineering. It deals with power and the machinery used to convert power to useful work. Mechanical Engineers design machines and processes to generate and apply power to useful purposes. The mechanical engineering technician is a practically-oriented member of the engineering team who applies existing technology to the solution of engineering problems and designs machines and processes that generate and apply power to useful purposes. For example, a mechanical engineering technician may assist in the design of a power plant, testing of a space shuttle, manufacturing of a nuclear submarine or building of an aircraft carrier. The curriculum includes course work in materials testing, thermo-fluids, dynamics, manufacturing, CAD, mathematics and the sciences.

Certificate Programs

Certificate Programs

The Engineering Technologies Exploratory Certificate is designed to prepare students for Engineering Technology programs and enable them to evaluate career choices in Engineering Technologies.

The 2D Computer-Aided Drafting Certificate meets the need of individuals interested in a basic exposure to, and /or exploration of, using and applying 2D CAD. The Advanced CADD Modeling Certificate can be attained while you are enrolled and working toward a degree, or it can be achieved in and of itself. Students will work on creating 2D professionally finished drawings under the supervision of a senior draftsperson.
