When it comes to engineering technology, classroom discussion can only go so far in exposing students to the challenges posed by the real world. MTSU's Engineering Technology program excels at placing students in contact with industry professionals in a stimulating and encouraging environment in which to acquire and test the skills and knowledge they will need after college.


What We're Doing

Come along for the ride!

Come along for the ride!

Established in 2004, the Experimental Vehicles Program (EVP) currently comprises four different undergraduate research projects. From moonbuggies and solar boats to SAE Formula One and SAE Mini Baja racing, teams take part in national and even global competitions while gaining valuable experience on how to work in a collaborative environment. Although these projects are geared towards students in the Engineering Technology Department, any MTSU student with enthusiasm and a willingness to learn is welcome to join in on the competitions.

Building a career

Building a career

The Robert E. and Georgianna West Russell Chair of Manufacturing Excellence is designed to promote quality interaction with local industry. Students are encouraged to benefit from the scheduled activities, seminars, and short courses sponsored by the Chair of Manufacturing Excellence. The chair is just one of the many ways by which the Engineering Technology department provides students with a career-oriented, hands-on education through nationally accredited programs.

Engineering Technology is a technologically advanced program at the Bachelor of Science level utilizing theoretical concepts and hands-on instruction. Program selection is from the following concentrations: Computer Engineering Technology, Electromechanical Engineering Technology, and Mechanical Engineering Technology.

千蠃官网国际网址The Mechanical Engineering Technology concentration is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc. () and enables students to obtain the skills necessary for placement in highly competitive jobs in machine design, manufacturing, engineering, field service engineering, technical sales, thermal analysis, product design, utilities operations, air conditioning design, plant operations, and a variety of other professions. Through design projects and laboratory training, students examine how to relate such skills to a variety of fields in mechanical engineering technology including product and machine design, power generation, utilities, and manufacturing. The educational quality of this program is especially high in that it provides students with the opportunity to mesh their in-class experiences with project-oriented assignments and real-world experience in national competitions such as the Great Moonbuggy Race, SAE Formula One Collegiate Competition, and the Mini Baja Race.

The prospects for a graduate in mechanical engineering technology are as broad as the major concentration itself. Graduates can expect opportunities to work on a variety of projects from developing and producing engines and transportation equipment in the automobile, ship, rail, and aviation industries to working as a member of an engineering technologist design team to improve high-performance automobiles and air-conditioned environments. Students graduating from mechanical engineering technology programs often find themselves in highly responsible, challenging, and extremely rewarding positions.

NOTE: A grade of C or better is required on transfer credits accepted as part of a major in Engineering Technology.
