Mechanical Engineering Technology Certificate


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Career Training Programs

Certificate of Completion: 39 credits

Enrollment Point: Fall Quarter

This program prepares students for entering the mechanical design profession, working for manufacturing and product development companies close to mechanical engineering and design of products like planes, cars, heavy machinery, consumer products and pretty much anything you can think of that assembles. Students take classes at night so that they can work during the day. When students are finished with the program, they will be able to create complete product data packages according to ASME, ANSI, and ISO standards of drawings and models using industry standard modeling tools that most of the major manufacturing companies are using.

Students will learn how to create drawings, mechanical part and assembly models, fully define models without drawings, and design using mechanical design engineering theory and concepts. Students will also learn how to use material information and mathematics to analyze mechanical designs and provide proof of concepts.

Program Learning Outcomes:

  • Produce Data Packages (DP’s) that achieve full product definition for mechanical assemblies and parts using drawing-based definition and model-based definition.
  • Apply mechanical design principles, mathematics, materials, and manufacturing process knowledge to design a mechanical assembly along a single digital thread.
  • Organize and produce geometric & non-geometric product data using spreadsheet software, windows file organization, and cloud storage organization.
