Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering Technology - BS
Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering technology (MMET) prepares students for dynamic careers in industry. Graduates are versatile and effective in diverse areas that require understanding of the dependencies among material properties, product design, costs, manufacturing systems, and process technologies. The student views manufacturing from an enterprise and system perspective, recognizing the importance of customer and supplier interactions. To meet these diverse needs, this degree program provides a foundation of mathematics, science, and specialized technical courses, as well as preparation in oral and written communication. The three main areas of concentration are product design, manufacturing systems integration and automation, and quality assessment. Studies in these areas are supported by a solid foundation in materials and manufacturing processes.
The Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org/.
The mission of the Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering Technology program at Texas A&M University is to provide a high-quality, application-oriented education producing professionals who can effectively contribute to leadership, the advancement of manufacturing and mechanical engineering technology, and improved performance of industrial endeavors.
