Curriculum & Requirements
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 at MechEngineering@ewu.edu.
In order to ensure all EWU Mechanical Engineering Technology graduates meet EWU ABET accreditation requirements, all Mechanical Engineering Technology students are required to take , , , , and / 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.
