Associate of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology – 100% Online

If you enjoy working with your hands and figuring out how things work, then mechanical engineering technology may be the career for you. Mechanical engineering technicians are real problem solvers with responsibilities that can range from those of support technician to plant manager.

The fact is, however, employers can’t seem to find enough of them to fill open positions. According to the Manufacturing Institute, 67% of respondents in a recent survey reported moderate to severe shortages of qualified workers, and 56% expect those shortages to grow worse in the next three to five years.* This skills gap means that properly trained technologists will only grow more in demand as time goes on.

Do you picture yourself as part of a team, working in testing, manufacturing, operations, maintenance, and technical support? Through ECPI University’s year-round schedule, you could earn an Associate of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology in as little as 1.5 years.

At ECPI University, we require more from our faculty. Yes, they have academic credentials, but they’ve also worked extensively in the fields they now teach. That means our students learn using industry-standard equipment with real-world applications.
