Please join us in our monthly tour at Tennessee Tech University’s Department of Manufacturing and Engineering Technology (MET). Attendees will meet at Lewis Hall and learn about the manufacturing labs of the MET department, the Foundry, iMakerSpace and iCube.

Dinner to follow after the tour.

Part of the TTU’s College of Engineering, the Engineering Technology program will prepares students to work in all types of manufacturing industries designing and improving processes. The program provides a broad background and hands-on experience in many areas including manufacturing processes, automated manufacturing, computer-aided design and manufacturing, fixture and tooling design. Lean production principles, project management, engineering economic analysis and communication skills are also important parts of this program.

The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology curriculum is built upon STEM technical-managerial education. The department strives to keep the curriculum up-to-date by incorporating new technological developments as they occur. The curriculum encompasses courses in manufacturing engineering technology, industrial engineering technology, industrial automation and business management. The courses give students an appealing and well-rounded education with breadth to function in any production environment. Potential employers know that the program’s graduates understand all of the common production operations that exist within a manufacturing environment.

The engineering technology curriculum ensures that the students gain problem solving skills through the general education requirements for mathematics and science courses. In the course of their study, students learn how to apply the rules of physics and use their mathematical skills to solve these problems. Furthermore, the students also gain written and oral communication skills and a background in literature, and American history. Students graduate with a minor in business by taking courses related to business practices, economics, accounting, and management as part of their regular curriculum requirements.

Upon completion of the engineering technology program, graduates will have strong background in industrial engineering technology topics to include: occupational safety, maintenance technology, manufacturing cost estimating, methods design and work measurements, quality assurance, and plant layout and materials handling. Furthermore, product design series covered in the statics and strength of materials, applied machine elements, and senior projects enables students to graduate with hands-on experience in product development.
