Mechanical Engineering Technology, Bachelor of Science (BS)
This degree combines studies of Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics and Mechanical Engineering Technology with an emphasis on applications. The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology Degree is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET . Before graduation each student will participate in a design project or an internship in industry to gain industrial experience during his or her academic career before employment. The emphasis of this program is the application of engineering principles to the solution of practical problems. MET graduates are in great demand and are employed in a variety of interesting, high-tech careers throughout the state and region. Employment opportunities are available in mechanical design, industrial engineering technology, industrial management, manufacturing, CAD, applied research and sales and service.
Minimum required to apply for admission to the Mechanical Engineering Program
Students must have completed or, be scheduled to complete, the following courses:
ENGL 201; ≥2.0
Students must apply for admission to the Mechanical Engineering program at EWU by February 15 . Admission is based upon the student’s GPA in the core courses listed above and a short essay.
- *if an internship cannot be found by student, independent study METC 491 may be substituted.
- Including university requirements for the degree the above program requires a minimum of 188 credits or an average load of 15.67 credits per quarter, for a 12 quarter, four-year program. The 188 credits are based on the following assumption: a. students have had one year of high school drafting. If this assumption is not true, then the student will have to take METC 102.
