Mechanical Engineering Technology is the component of engineering that specializes
in design and application. MET includes the broad areas of mechanical design, mechanical
power and manufacturing.
Why mechanical engineering technology at OSU?
An important element in MET is the use of laboratory experience as a teaching tool.
The MET program has laboratories in fluid power, materials, fluid mechanics and applied
thermal sciences, basic instrumentation, computer-aided design (CAD) and manufacturing.
A senior capstone design course, composed of student teams, integrates the knowledge
and skills learned during their course of study.
Professions in, but not limited to, the energy, manufacturing or other technical fields
with the following possible job titles:
Tool Design Engineer
Offshore Field Engineer
Quality Control Engineer
All faculty members have several years of industrial experience and are highly focused
on teaching while conducting application-oriented research. The majority of courses
are taught based on hands-on training and application of engineering concepts. There
are opportunities for undergraduate research, teaching assistant/grader positions,
giving students the chance to gainreal-world experience that will prepare them for a professional career or advanced
study in a graduate or professional program upon graduation.
The OSU Industrial Assessment Center (IAC) is funded by the US Department of Energy
(DOE) through the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and is managed
by experienced faculty members and students.
