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 http://www.abet.org. Before graduation each student will participate in a design project and 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 Technology Program
Students must apply for admission to the Mechanical Engineering program at EWU. The application is due during the first week of the quarter prior to the one desired for program admission. Admission is based upon the student’s GPA in core courses below which must be completed no later than the quarter of application. The application can be obtained by email.
In order to ensure all EWU Mechanical Engineering Technology graduates meet EWU ABET accreditation requirements, all Mechanical Engineering Technology students are required to take MENG 300, MENG 353, MENG 385, METC 415, MENG 412 and METC 490A/METC 490B from EWU. Exceptions to this policy will be reviewed on a case by case basis by the Mechanical Engineering Technology curriculum review committee to ensure the student has successfully met the EWU ABET performance indicators required for each course.
- In order to graduate, students majoring in the department must earn a GPA ≥2.5 in departmental coursework.
- Students getting a minor in the department must also earn a GPA ≥2.5 in departmental coursework.
Students must have completed, or be scheduled to complete, the following courses by the end of winter quarter. Most of the following courses have minimum grade requirements and are prerequisites for Engineering and Design courses.
- CHEM 151 ( ≥D- accepted)
- ENGL 201
- MATH 161, MATH 162
- METC 340 or MENG 240 and METC 341 or MENG 241
- PHYS 131 and PHYS 132, and PHYS 133
or PHYS 151, PHYS 152 or PHYS 153
- *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.
