The University of Central Missouri's Engineering Technology degree curriculum by its nature is based both in theory and experiential learning. In order to apply theories studied in the classroom, students experience a wide variety of state-of-the-art laboratories. Students in the Engineering Technology program with focus on Mechanical Engineering Technology will work in facilities that house over 15 student laboratories, including:
An internship is required for the Engineering Technology degree. It is the student’s responsibility to secure the internship before graduation, but valuable assistance can be obtained through UCM Career and Life Design Center, Engineering Technology faculty, and industrial alliances.
Many students work their internship(s) during the summer. However, more and more companies want students to work an extended internship, sometimes called a co-op. This requires the student to either withdraw from UCM classes for one semester or work the internship while taking classes during the spring or fall. Typically, the student is paid a competitive wage during the internship and many times it will directly lead to a job upon graduation.
The Engineering Technology Program at Central Missouri University is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org.
