Manufacturing Engineering Technology

Manufacturing Engineering Technology (MET) is the profession in which the understanding of a broad range of technologies is necessary to apply and control manufacturing processes. It includes methods of production of industrial commodities and consumer products. The manufacturing professional must be able to plan, design, and implement the facilities, tools, machines, and the sequence of operations for producing high-quality products at competitive prices.

The Department offers two-year AAS and four-year BS degrees in manufacturing Engineering Technology.

BS-MET Sample Program

A.A.S Degree in Manufacturing (2-Year)

Career opportunities for two-year associate degree graduates of Manufacturing Engineering Technology include entry-level positions with industries engaged in plant design, machine and tool design, robotics and industrial automation, and computer-integrated manufacturing.

B.S. Degree in Manufacturing (4-Year)

Four-year B.S. degree graduates qualify for jobs related to production, process and productivity improvement, and process design. They also qualify for supervisory and managerial positions in plant engineering.

Graduates of Missouri Western’s manufacturing program have a strong and broad foundation that enables them to perform well in any field in which application of manufacturing principles is required.
