Mechanical engineering technology design | Stark State College - North Canton, Ohio

Mechanical engineering technology design

As a mechanical engineering technology design major you’ll learn to prepare detailed drawings based on rough sketches, specifications and calculations. You’ll be able to determine the strength, type and quantity of materials needed and give the dimensions necessary to make detailed parts or assemblies. You’ll know you’re getting a state-of-the-art education, thanks to the input of an advisory committee of professionals from local businesses and industries. As a design engineering technician you’ll specialize in the design of tools, machines or products for structural, electrical, civil and mechanical systems or represent ideas graphically through traditional drawings or computer-aided design (CAD) systems.
