The Mechanical Engineering Technology curriculum emphasizes both theoretical and practical applications, providing MSU Denver students with a solid foundation in mechanical engineering fundamentals, as well as hands-on laboratory work. This applied engineering emphasis allows students to experience the integration of engineering theory and practice. The MET program offers concentrations in mechanical and manufacturing engineering technology courses that keep students current with industry standards. Mechanical Engineering Technologists are employed in various industries ranging from large aerospace companies to small manufacturing and custom-design businesses applying engineering analysis to solve problems and design to enhance existing conditions. The Mechanical Engineering Technology program at MSU Denver is aimed to educate students in the theoretical and applied skillsets necessary to work in a wide range of technology industry positions.
Under the revised rules and regulations of the Colorado State Board for Professional Engineers and Professional Land Surveyors, MET students at MSU Denver pursuing their Professional Engineering license may take the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination within 30 semester hours of graduation.
