Mechanical Design Technology responds to industry needs for trained individuals who can follow the design process from inspiration to the final production design of manufactured products. The Mechanical Design Technology program prepares specialists who are capable of integrating all the steps of the design process.
The mechanical designer requires knowledge in many areas including Computer Aided Drafting and Design, Machine Shop, Robotics and Machine Components.
Foundation courses will provide knowledge of physics, mathematics, machine shop practices, machine theory and robot automation programming. Subsequent courses build upon this basic knowledge to develop applications related to modern machine design.
To prepare students for the rapid pace of technological changes in the workplace, the Mechanical Design Technology program seeks to develop long-term sustainable design and problem-solving capabilities.
While manufacturing has had its struggles in recent years, demand is expected to be strong for mechanical designers as companies emphasize high-quality and safe products that are easy to use. High technology products in medicine, transportation, and other fields, and growing global competition among businesses are expected to keep designers busy.
