Engineering Technology: Mechanical

Engineering Technology graduates in the mechanical concentration design equipment and products that affect virtually every area of your life. The emphasis of engineering technology is on the practical application of theory. Mechanical Engineering Technology is one of the most diverse engineering technology disciplines, dealing with the design, development and manufacture of every kind of vehicle, power system, machine and tool.

As a senior design team, Frontier Wheelchairs has partnered with Hope Haven International in Antigua, Guatemala, to improve wheelchair designs to serve the needs of wheelchair users.

Led by Norman Reese, the project allows students to go through the whole engineering design process, from interacting with the "customer" and developing design concepts, to getting hands-on experience building their own wheelchair.

The SAE Mini Baja Project is an international, collegiate competition that requires students design, build, and race an off-road vehicle. SAE gives specific guidelines that each team must follow in order to compete.

Competition results are based on the design, cost, and performance of each vehicle. Teams are entirely student based with the exception of a faculty advisor.
