Program Overview

Program Description:

If you want a hands-on career in design, testing, manufacturing, or operations, then the Mechanical Engineering Technology field may be just what you've been looking for. Here's the best part: there are jobs that are waiting to be filled right now. That's because modern manufacturing is staging a major comeback, thanks to robotics and advanced electronics.

However, many employers cannot find the highly-skilled workers they needed to work with such advanced equipment. 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.* Now if you're thinking that manufacturing is a dirty, grimy job, think again. Today's plants and facilities look more like science labs!

If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, right now could be the perfect time to earn a degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology at ECPI University! In just 2.5 years, you can earn a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology through our year-round schedule.
