Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology Concentration, B.S.

The Mechanical Engineering Technology Concentration is part of the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology offered through the College of Basic and Applied Science at MTSU.

The Mechanical Engineering Technology concentration enables students to obtain the skills necessary for placement in highly competitive jobs in machine design, manufacturing, engineering, field service engineering, technical sales, thermal analysis, product design, utility operations, air conditioning design, plant operations, and a variety of other professions. Through design projects and laboratory training, students examine how to relate such skills to a variety of fields in mechanical engineering technology including product and machine design, power generation, utilities, and manufacturing. The educational quality of this program is especially high in that it provides students with the opportunity to mesh their in-class experiences with project-oriented assignments and real-world experience in national competitions such as the NASA Great Moonbuggy Race, SAE Formula One Collegiate Competition, Solar Boat, and the Mini Baja Race.


  • The Mechanical Engineering Technology concentration is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc. ( , under the General Criteria and the Mechanical Engineering Technology Program Criteria.
  • Extensive experience in advanced lab methodologies
  • Graduates recruited by regional, national, and international employers
