The Bachelor of Science in Manufacturing Engineering Technology is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET, Inc., http://www.abet.org. ABET is a specialized accrediting board recognized by the Council for Higher Education and/or the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education.
Program Mission Statement
The Manufacturing Engineering Technology Program at Oregon Institute of Technology is an applied engineering technology program. Its mission is to provide graduates with the skills and knowledge for successful careers in Manufacturing Engineering Technology.
Program Educational Objectives
Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the program is preparing graduates to achieve. The Program Educational Objectives of Oregon Tech's Manufacturing Engineering Technology Program are to produce graduates who:
- are able to analyze, design, implement, and maintain practical mechanical and manufacturing systems.
- communicate effectively and work well on team-based engineering projects.
- succeed in manufacturing and mechanical engineering technology positions.
- pursue continued professional development
Program Student Learning Outcomes
The Manufacturing Engineering Technology program student learning outcomes have been mapped to the five ABET outcomes listed below. A baccalaureate degree program in engineering technology must demonstrate that graduates have:
- an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- an ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and nontechnical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
- an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes; and
- an ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
In addition, the BSMFG curriculum must include instruction in the following topics:
- materials and manufacturing processes;
- product design process, tooling, and assembly;
- manufacturing systems, automation, and operations;
- statistics, quality and continuous improvement, and industrial organization and management; and
- capstone or integrating experience that develops and illustrates student competencies in applying both technical and non-technical skills in successfully solving manufacturing problems.
Summary of Program Student Learning Outcomes
During the 2016-17 academic year, the Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering Technology faculty formally assessed the student learning outcomes summarized in the annual program report. Additional details can be found in department assessment records.
