Mechanical Engineering Technology (BS) NEWSLETTER – Spring 2019

Dear Alums, Friends, and Students:

IT IS A PLEASURE to share with you a brief selection of the news and accomplishments from our students and faculty in Mechanical Engineering Technology. As a new Dean, it has been an honor to learn from and become a member of this commUNITY that is so dedicated to the professional, technical, and social development of our students to graduate into the changing needs of industry.

We learned in December that the administrative reporting structure for the Mechanical Engineering Technology program would change to the College of Engineering to form a new department in Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering Technology. The Machine Shop will remain managed by this program. EET and MET will be co-hosting a new Masters degree in Mechatronics (pending final approvals).This transition will occur over summer 2019 and is being planned to be seamless for the students.

As our program continues to grow and gain prominence, we hope you will partner with us in a way that is highly personal and meaningful to you (scholarships, lab equipment, internship experiences, virtual tours of your facilities, safety modules, etc.) and that has a significant impact on student development.

Best Regards,

Adrienne Minerick
Dean, School of Technology
