Policy Statement - 05-04 Manufacturing Engineering Technology, Bachelor of Science in

Bachelor of Science in Manufacturing Engineering Technology 
(code MAE_BS06) (134 units) 

This new program was recommended by the Academic Senate on March 18, 2004, approved by the President on June 14, 2004, and approved the the Chancellor on April 18, 2005. 


The Manufacturing Engineering Technology Program is designed to provide a solid technical foundation to its graduates, which will enable them to perform well in a variety of employment situations. The program focuses on applications of current manufacturing and quality assurance technologies to solve real-world problems by offering a broad curriculum, which covers current trends in the industry. 

The Manufacturing Engineering Technology Program prepares the student for a career position as a Manufacturing Technologist, or Quality Assurance Technologist in a variety of industries, such as Aerospace, Biomedical, Chemical, Computer, Electronics, Power, etc. Students are offered a wide range of training in topics such as materials, manufacturing processes, quality control and different production environments. Moreover, the program emphasizes written and oral communication skills as well as modern methods of industrial administration and supervision. The program is designed to meet ABET criteria for accredited programs in engineering technology. 

The program has been developed to accommodate students who may wish to transfer credits earned at other colleges or approved technical or military service schools. It is recommended that prospective students, prior to submitting an application for admission, contact the advisor of the Manufacturing Engineering Technology program to discuss departmental requirements and the admission requirements of the University. The two emphases in the Manufacturing Engineering Technology Program are: (a) Manufacturing Processes, and (b) Quality Assurance
