Mechanical Engineering Technology


The Mechanical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET.

Of all the Fairmont State University engineering programs, the Mechanical Engineering Technology program is the broadest and most diverse. 

The hands-on experiences are distinct.  By using advanced mathematics, science and problem solving students complete the program with tangible projects.

Mechanical Engineering Technology students formulate, design, fabricate, test, and compete for their racecars, robots, and industrial devices at the nation's top engineering campuses. 

  • If steering needs adjustment, they adjust it. 
  • If a part needs to be machined, they machine it.
  • If a design needs to be perfected, they perfect it.

Students in the Mechanical Engineering Technology program can pursue a 2 or 4-year degree. Students solve complex mechanical problems while they learn by doing.  Classes are small.  Students interact, one-to-one with talented, highly trained, and internationally recognized faculty.
