Program Description
Sioux City Campus

The Mechanical Engineering Technology program provides students with the opportunity to enter the engineering technology field as a drafter, designer, or various other positions within an engineering design team. Graduates find themselves working within an industry where they take a product from conception and design and through the manufacturing process.

The program of study includes computer-assisted drafting, design engineering practices, and course work in mechanical design. Students will gain an understanding of the effects of forces, motion, material strengths, and the principles of hydraulics and pneumatics.

Industrial expansion and technological developments in the last decade have created an ever-increasing demand for qualified technicians. Numerous employment opportunities await every graduate.
