Mechanical engineering technology – design major

As a mechanical engineering technology design major you’ll turn rough sketches, specs and calculations into detailed drawings that make parts and assembly happen using traditional methods as well as the latest CAD software, including AutoCAD, SolidWorks, Inventor and Pro/ENGINEER (Creo Parametric). You’ll also learn how to apply CAD solid modeling into 3D prints and scans. You might specialize in designing tools, machines or products for structural, electrical, civil and mechanical systems while making ideas visual through both CAD and traditional drawings. Our accredited MET-design major program gets regular input from local business and industry, so you’ll get an education tailored to the job market.
