The mission of the 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.
The Department of Manufacturing & Construction Engineering Technology (MCET) in the College of Engineering, Technology, and Computer Science serves the needs of students, industry, and government in northeast Indiana.
The department offers Associate of Science (A.S.) in Architectural Engineering Technology (ARET), Civil Engineering Technology (CET), Industrial Engineering Technology (IET), Interior Design (INTR), and Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET). The Department also offers Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree programs in Construction Engineering Technology (CNET), Industrial Engineering Technology (IET), and Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET). The Engineering Technology programs (both A.S. and B.S.) are accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org . The department also offers a certificate in quality.
The primary focus of the department is the development of its students. It encourages students to acquire the knowledge and understanding that helps them contribute to society by leading meaningful and productive lives.
The major thrust of the department is to prepare graduates to understand basic concepts of knowledge, have studied one technical field in sufficient depth to appreciate its methodologies and fundamental unresolved questions, and have acquired a basis for lifelong learning. Attainment of the above is accomplished through the establishment of required courses in (1) a core of general education, (2) required technical courses in the major area, and (3) elective courses combining breadth of subject matter with specific study in depth. Laboratory experience is an essential part of both associate and bachelor degree programs.
