Mechanical Engineering Technology

This program is available at the Springfield - Leffel Lane location.

The Mechanical Engineering Technology program is designed to prepare students for entry-level technology occupations related to mechanical engineering. These occupations include a variety of jobs titles in the areas of product design, drafting, analysis, manufacturing, quality control, and testing. Skills in the area of creating and interpreting engineering drawings and the practices and procedures of manufacturing and principles of product design are emphasized.

In addition to applied technical courses, Mechanical Engineering includes a co-op experience.  Students must complete EBE 1000, Employability Skills, and then work with Career Services to secure an appropriate co-op site.

Embedded Certificate
This degree program contains one or more embedded certificates which will automatically be awarded if the certificate requirements are met unless the student contacts Records and Registration and indicates he/she does not wish to have the certificate credential awarded.

Students wishing to seek an Engineering Technology Bachelor's Degree at a four-year university are highly encouraged to review articulation agreements and consult with their academic advisor. 

The co-op must be a minimum of two semester hours in any combination of co-op (EBE 2701, EBE 2702, EBE 2703, EBE 2704).

The program schedule is designed for full-time students who have completed all prerequisites and who have no college preparatory recommendations. Many individuals, especially part-time students, and those taking college preparatory courses, will require additional semesters of study.

Humanities/Social Science ElectivesA complete listing of humanities and social science electives can be found in the College Catalog.

Academic Preparation

It is recommended students starting the program have taken high-school algebra, trigonometry and physics. 

Transfer Information

Students enrolled in Associate of Applied Business and Associate of Applied Science degree programs are preparing for employment upon graduation from the program. However, at some point many of these students are also interested in completing a bachelor's degree. A number of colleges or universities have designed bachelor's completion programs designed for students completing applied degrees. See the Transfer section of the catalog for more information.

Students that might wish to transfer coursework from Clark State to other institutions to earn a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering technology should contact the transfer institution very early in their program at Clark State. Students should also consult their academic advisor for help in planning their schedules.
