Bachelor of Science inMechanical and Manufacturing Engineering Technology

Engineering Technology Graduates use the principles of science, engineering, and mathematics to solve problems in research, product development, manufacturing, marketing, technical sales, service, and maintenance. Their role is vital, and as society becomes ever more dependent upon technology, the need for those experienced in engineering technology will also increase. In fact, the U.S. Department of Labor expects overall employment in the engineering technology field to grow, and graduates have a wide variety of career options.

My experience at Lawrence Tech was a good one right from the beginning. I was impressed with the faculty’s dedication and helpfulness. Earning my degree increased my marketability in the professional world.

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering Technology provides a strong foundation in mechanical, manufacturing, and electrical engineering technologies. It is a unique program that has three clusters of courses: Engineering Technology (includes manufacturing processes, engineering mechanics, transducers and instrumentation); Manufacturing Quality (includes Six Sigma, lean manufacturing); and Technical Management (includes engineering project management, operations management). 

Besides being an ABET accredited program, the program is also accredited by the Council for Six Sigma Certification (CSSC) to offer a unique opportunity for the enrolled students to become Six Sigma certified at the Black Belt level as they are pursuing their degree.

Graduates of engineering technology, engineering, and sciences are instrumental in product development, building or testing equipment, preparing and conducting experiments, analyzing results, or building prototype versions of newly designed products and equipment, or in research. Others work in quality control – inspecting products and processes.

Program Educational Objectives are: Within a few years, BSMMET graduates will be able to: 

  1. Employ theory and practice learned through their curriculum to propose solutions to technical problems, analyze engineering alternatives and perform critical tasks in their field. 
  2. Become effective team collaborators, leaders and innovators, supporting efforts to address technical, business and social challenges.
  3. Assume management, entrepreneurial, and leadership roles in manufacturing, product development, and related industries.
  4. Engage in life-long learning through professional development opportunities and graduate programs in engineering and business. 

Student Outcomes
