The mission of MCET is to support the career aspirations of undergraduate and graduate students, and to fulfill the needs of their current and future employers. The Department offers, develops, and continuously improves educational programs to meet these needs. The programs are accessible to traditional and nontraditional students, and support evolving career objectives by emphasizing lifelong learning.
Engineering Technology courses use algebra and trigonometry to teach practical engineering concepts. Core Engineering Technology courses begin in the first semester. Hands-on laboratory instruction is a large part of the curriculum.
In contrast, Engineering courses use algebra, trigonometry, and calculus, and focus more on design and engineering theory. The first two years concentrate on basic math, science, and electives; most of the core Engineering courses are taken in the third and fourth year.
All Engineering Technology faculty have at least three years of relevant industrial experience. This background enables the faculty to discuss personal experience of practical examples to the classroom.
The MET A.S. and B.S. Programs are accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (TAC/ABET). Periodically, auditors evaluate program objectives and program outcomes. Information about annual student enrollment and student graduation data for these programs can be found at the IPFW Statistical Reports website.
