Curriculum for students entering program in 2014-15.
The Mechanical Engineering Technology program is designed to educate technicians in the mechanical engineering field. The program includes courses in the areas of design, manufacturing and controls. Mathematics and physical sciences are emphasized to give students the basic knowledge to cope with changing technology. Course work incorporates theory and practice along with extensive computer applications including computer-aided drawing/modeling and design. English and social science courses are taught as part of the program to broaden and improve communication skills.

The degree of Associate in Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology is awarded upon successful completion of the program. Graduates are employed in positions such as assistant engineer, machine designer, engineering sales representative, engineering laboratory technician, technical supervisor and CAD operator. A 3-year version of this program is available. Contact the Department Head for details.

Transfer Information

Specific Admission Requirements

  1. At least three years of college preparatory mathematics (Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry) with minimum grades of “C”;
  2. It is strongly recommended that all engineering technology applicants have satisfactorily completed high school level courses in chemistry and physics.

Internship Considerations

NHTI has developed excellent practicum opportunities for our students to foster hands-on learning while simultaneously receiving credit. Nonetheless, the college's first priority must be to ensure that patients/clients/children/families are not placed in jeopardy by students during learning experiences. Therefore, students in internship, externship, practicum, service learning, and clinical experiences must demonstrate sufficient emotional stability to withstand the stresses, uncertainties and changing circumstances that characterize patient/client/child/family responsibilities. Furthermore, the student is expected to have the emotional stability required to exercise sound judgment, accept direction and guidance from a supervisor or faculty member, and establish rapport and maintain sensitive interpersonal relationships and confidentiality with employees, customers, and/or patients/clients/children and their families.
