Mechanical Engineering Technology provides the right combination of theory and hands-on training to prepare students for employment opportunities in the design, manufacture and set-up of mechanical equipment such as engines, power generation and control systems, and manufacturing systems (including robots). Specific job responsibilities include working as a designer, computer aided design/drafting, instrumentation and testing of machines and system, and developing and troubleshooting manufacturing systems.

Can students who major in Mechanical Engineering Technology transfer to a four-year college or university?
Students may choose to participate in the Joint Admissions Program with the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Articulation agreements with public and private institutions offer students who earn the A.A.S. degree the opportunity to transfer all of their coursework to the four-year institution. Students in specialized programs, or who earn an A.A.S. degree should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.
Are there any requirements that must be satisfied before taking courses in the major?
Algebra I is a prerequisite for all majors. Algebra I competency may be verified with a passing score on the College’s placement test or completion of the appropriate course. Students must also have a grade of “C” or better in high school algebra II and geometry.
How long will it take to complete this degree?
Once students complete developmental coursework (if needed), the degree can be completed in two years of full-time study. They can shorten the amount of time by taking courses in the summer and winter sessions.

Our students transfer to 4-year colleges and universities around the globe. We’ve had students transfer to every state, including Alaska and Hawaii.
The Statewide Transfer Agreement for New Jersey ensures that students who earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at a community college will have those credits fully transferable to a New Jersey public four-year institution, will have completed half of the credits required for a basic four-year degree and will have completed all lower division general education requirements. In addition, articulation agreements are being worked out with institutions granting baccalaureate degrees to facilitate the transfer process. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.
