Are you a high school student anxious to enter the workforce, an adult trying to retool for a changing economy, or a skilled tradesperson looking to enhance your skills?

Summary

A Lawrence Technological University associate degree may be just what you need to begin – or advance – a successful career in an engineering technology-related field. In fact, most employers in the industry prefer to hire workers with at least a two-year degree, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. And in an increasingly competitive and global marketplace, staying abreast of the latest technologies is crucial.

Why Mechanical Engineering Technology at Lawrence Tech?

Mechanical engineering technicians play a crucial role in business and industry by assisting engineers with a wide variety of tasks. Technicians may be involved in the design, development, testing, or manufacturing of products, equipment, or machinery. Some perform experiments, collect and analyze data, or work with engineers to troubleshoot production problems. Others may branch into technical sales. The Associate of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology was designed to provide you with an understanding of advanced technologies relating to mechanical engineering, including thermal and fluid mechanics, statics, dynamics, and computer graphics. Not only can the program lead to a rewarding career path, but the credits can also be applied to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology.
