Mechanical Engineering Technology Online Degree Program Overview
If you enjoy working with your hands and figuring out how things work, then mechanical engineering technology may be the career for you. Mechanical engineering technicians are real problem solvers with responsibilities that can range from those of support technician to plant manager.
The fact is, however, employers can’t seem to find enough of them to fill open positions. According to the Manufacturing Institute, 67% of respondents in a recent survey reported moderate to severe shortages of qualified workers, and 56% expect those shortages to grow worse in the next three to five years.*
Do you picture yourself as part of a team, working in testing, manufacturing, operations, maintenance, and technical support? Through ECPI University’s year-round schedule, you could earn an Associate of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering Technology in as little as 1.5 years.
