Mechanical Engineering Technology - Mechanical Program of Study, A.A.S.

See Details

The Mechanical Engineering Technology Program is five terms in duration once the student is prepared for initial Communications and Mathematics requirements. Students who require preparatory coursework prior to program entry will require longer to complete the program. The students are exposed to a number of technologies during curriculum coursework. Robotics: Students have the opportunity to interact with a training robot to develop familiarity with fundamental displacement concepts. Students create and edit basic programs for pick and place applications for a finite number of objects. Students determine training robot limitations, develop file management skill, and explore how operators will interact with the robot via an applicable teach pendant. During this process the students learn troubleshooting techniques and hone their programming skill. Fluid Power: Students are exposed to fluid mechanics and practical hydraulics and pneumatics. They actively build and document both hydraulic and pneumatic circuits. They are also exposed to the electrical control and control logic of intermediate fluid power circuits. Engineering Graphics: Students are exposed to the fundamentals of engineering graphics. They apply these techniques in 2D CAD and 3D solid modeling. Techniques are reinforced throughout the curriculum in various courses and students are challenged to develop further skill and utilize 3D modeling to develop, document and present creative and robust solutions to technical problems. Students also gain exposure to advanced materials technology and additive manufacturing technology via coursework and interaction with staff at the Southeastern Institute for Manufacturing and Technology (SiMT). Integrated Technology: Students amass soft skills along with technical skills that are necessary to assimilate into the workforce quickly. Programs in place at FDTC have successfully prepared students for this transition for well over a decade utilizing this approach. Engineering Technician Careers have evolved over the past decades - this has resulted in new challenges for technicians in the workforce. They must be prepared to continually learn new technologies and processes - they must be able to adapt. FDTC Engineering Technology Students have met this challenge and are continuing to do so today. [FDTC's Engineering Technology Programs are tasked with continuing to prepare incoming students to meet the challenges of the future].
