Curriculum for students entering program in 2019-20.
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 Chair for details.

Program Leaning Outcomes/Objectives

  1. Prepare graduates for professional entry level positions with the engineering technical skills to meet the demands of industry in the areas of mechanical design, manufacturing, and industrial automation.
  2. Prepare graduates with the skills necessary to enter a four-year baccalaureate program.
  3. Prepare graduates with skills to be life-long learners to meet the technical needs of an ever-changing society.
  4. Prepare graduates to effectively communicate in a diverse world with respect to social awareness and ethical issues.

Student Learning Outcomes

  1. An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve well-defined engineering problems within Mechanical Engineering Technology.
  2. An ability to design solutions for well-defined technical problems and assist with the engineering design of systems, components, or processes problems within Mechanical Engineering Technology.
  3. An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in well-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature.
  4. An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results.
  5. An ability to function effectively as a member of a technical team.

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.
