Do you like to tinker with machines? Do you dream of inventing something that will make life easier or the world a better place to live? If you do, you have the makings of a mechanical engineer.
At Oregon Tech, Mechanical Engineering Technology majors learn the theory and application of mechanical design and the process of developing a product that can improve society. You'll spend nearly half of your class time in the lab, applying what you have learned using state-of-art equipment.
About the Program
Mechanical engineers work in many industries, and their work varies by industry and function. Some specialize in energy systems; applied mechanics; automotive design; manufacturing; materials; plant engineering and maintenance; pressure vessels and piping; and heating, refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines, so graduates have a wide range of career options from which to choose.
