The Mechanical Engineering Technology (METC) Program at Ivy Tech Community College is a great opportunity for those who enjoy hands-on experiences. Curriculum in this program allows students to learn about materials, testing, and design. They will also learn skills such as synthesizing, improving and implementing mechanical designs. Students will gain a necessary understanding in order to support engineering processes such as collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data and troubleshooting mechanical systems.
Graduates of our Associate of Science (AS) degree can seamlessly transfer to a four-year institution through our "Transfer as a Junior" program, entering at a junior status. To learn more about our Transfer as a Junior programs, and how they can save you money, visit our TSAP page. Please keep in mind, you will also need to be admitted to the four-year institution you intend to transfer to, admission is not guaranteed just by enrolling in a Transfer as a Junior program.
Our program prepares students to transfer to a four year engineering technology program at universities such as Purdue or IUPUI. At these universities students will be able to enhance their technology, science, and math skills to work with engineers and other technicians. Areas of work entry include design, manufacturing, transportation, computer and electronics. If you would like to learn more about our transfer partnerships, talk to your transfer advocate!
