As a mechanical engineering technology program graduate, you will be well prepared to be a mechanical engineer (B.S.) or technician (AAS) for the industry in engineering-related areas, including automotive component design; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC); process and component design; mechanical systems design; energy systems; product development; and technical support and sales. You will be able to design, specify, test, analyze, and install mechanical systems. This broad content exposure occurs through the development of analytical skills and theory in the classroom and experience working with engines, complete energy systems, compressors, fans, pumps, controls, instrumentation, engineering graphics, and material testing.
Program educational objectives were established with the assistance of the Industrial Advisory Committee and are reviewed periodically. The AAS in the mechanical engineering technology program produces graduates who:
Alfred State mechanical engineering technology AAS graduates may enter directly into the construction supervision BTech, the interdisciplinary studies BTech, the mechanical engineering technology BS, or the technology management BBA degree program.
A cooperative/transfer program involving one year of appropriate study in either mechanical engineering technology or engineering science at selected regional community colleges, together with a second year of study at Alfred State, will result in the awarding of the AAS degree to qualified graduates.
Graduates from the associate-level mechanical engineering technology program are eligible to continue their education by enrolling in a baccalaureate degree program in mechanical or related engineering technology at Alfred State or elsewhere. Our mechanical engineering technology AAS two-year degree program is the same as the first two years of the mechanical engineering technology BS four-year degree program.
|Sales and applications
|HVAC & R industry
|MEMS and Microfabrication
Employment and continuing education rate:
Mechanical engineering technology (AAS degree): 100 percent – 33 percent are employed; 67 percent continued their education.
|Enrollment (based on Fall census)
Required: Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2
If students do not place into MATH 1033 College Algebra, MATH 1084 Calculus I, MATH 1323 Quantitative Reasoning, 1034 College Algebra of Functions, 1054 Precalculus, or 2124 Statistical Methods & Analysis, then MATH 1014 Algebra Concepts is a required prerequisite for completion of the major.
If students do not place into PHYS 1024 General Physics I or PHYS 1044 College Physics I, then PHYS 1014 Introductory Physics is a required prerequisite for completion of this major.
Courses that repeat or significantly overlap those taken in the student’s associate degree program cannot be taken for upper-level credit. If the associate degree covered the subject matter in one of the required baccalaureate courses, a different course must be substituted and approved by the faculty adviser.
It is essential that students are able to fully participate, with or without a reasonable accommodation, in engineering technology lab and test procedures. Engineering technology students should be able to:
A tier 3 laptop computer is required for students entering the mechanical engineering technology program. Laptop specifications are available at www.alfredstate.edu/required-laptops.
Students who believe they need a reasonable accommodation to properly participate in this program may contact Melanie Ryan in the Office of Accessibility Services. This office may be contacted by email at email@example.com or by phone at 607-587-4506. Please keep in mind that some accommodations may take time to implement, so students seeking accommodations are encouraged to contact OAS as early as possible.
Math through Technical Calculus II must be completed. Students who start at a higher level in math must meet all SUNY general education and campus liberal arts and sciences course credit requirements for graduation.
