Why This Program?
Manufacturing engineering technicians (METs) combine knowledge of electrical and mechanical technology to install, maintain and repair machinery. The machinery is often computer controlled. They must have the troubleshooting skills to detect minor problems and correct them before they become costly. METs use technical manuals, observation skills and their understanding of electrical, mechanical and electronic principles to discover the causes of problems. They may also assist management and engineers in developing, updating and maintaining manufacturing operations. METs are employed in every industry that requires equipment function including: Industrial Electronics, Renewable Energy, and Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVACR) to name a few.
This program prepares students to utilize knowledge of electrical and mechanical technology to install, maintain and repair equipment and machinery. Students learn troubleshooting skills to detect
problems and correct them before they become costly.
