MET - Mechanical Engineering Technology

MET101 (3 credits)
Mechanical Drafting
Introduces manual mechanical drafting techniques. Focuses on drawing layout, dimensioning standards, and sectional views through a series of practical problems. Prerequisites: RD90 or WR91, or designated placement score.

MET104 (3 credits)
Applied Shop Practices
Covers calculation, layout, and procedure standards in applied topics in manufacturing and machining technologies. An understanding of mathematical concepts is stressed in all topics ranging from general arithmetic processes to oblique trigonometry, compound angles and numerical control. Prerequisites: MTH63 or MTH60 and RD90 or WR91 or designated placement scores.

MET105 (3 credits)
Blueprint Reading: Mechanical
Introduces blueprints using multi-view projection, sectional views, auxiliary views, title blocks, and drawing formats, which are the basis for all graphical communication in the manufacturing industry today. Knowledge of the techniques used on blueprints is necessary in the industry whenever descriptions of size, shape, and arrangement are used to produce, service, or sell a product. This course also introduces students to blueprint and drawing techniques which will be built upon with additional modules in the program. Dual numbered as WLD104. Prerequisites: MTH20 and RD90 or WR91. Recommended prerequisite: MTH63.

MET111 (3 credits)
CAD I: Mechanical (Autodesk Inventor)
Introduces students to the basic concepts of computer aided design (CAD) and drafting. These include but are not limited to: set-up workspace, sketches, features, and drawings. Working in both two- and three-dimensions as well as in solids, students will learn the operating system, command codes, file menu, and symbol library of an industry standard, computer aided design and drafting system. Prerequisites: CIS120 or documented proficiency. Recommended co-requisites: MET101 and MET105.

MET112 (3 credits)
CAD II: Mechanical (Autodesk Inventor)
Introduces students to advanced concepts of computer aided design (CAD) and drafting. These include but are not limited to advanced commands, thread creation, surfaces, advanced work planes, and stress analysis (FEA). Working in both two- and three-dimensions as well as in solids, students will learn the operating system, Inventor CAD environment, advanced tools and symbol library of an industry standard, computer aided design and drafting system. Prerequisite: MET111. Recommended co-requisites: MET101 and MET105.

MET113 (3 credits)
CAD III: Mechanical Autodesk Inventor)
Covers advanced techniques used in creating and modifying parametric, assembly-centric 3D models with Inventor. Exercises in this course develop extensive knowledge in the areas of part and assembly modeling, adaptive features, utilizing work groups, surfacing, managing data and the Engineer’s Notebook. Exercises will include but are not limited to advanced commands and surfaces, advanced work planes, and advanced stress analysis (FEA). Working in both two- and three-dimensions as well as in solids, students will learn advanced multiple drawing and modification commands, create advanced three-dimensional solid models and assemblies, and apply industry standards in the preparation of technical mechanical drawings. Prerequisites: MET111 and MET112.

MET121 (3 credits)
CAD I: Mechanical (Introduction to SolidWorks)
First in a three-term series introducing students to the basic concepts of computer aided design (CAD) and drafting. Course studies will be completed using SolidWorks CAD software. Studies include set-up workspace, sketches, features, and drawings. Working in both two- and three-dimensions as well as in solids, students will learn the operating system, command codes, file menu, and symbol library of an industry standard, computer aided design and drafting system. Prerequisites: CIS120 or documented proficiency. Recommended co-requisites: MET101 and MET105.

MET122 (3 credits)
CAD II: Mechanical (SolidWorks)
Second in a three-term series, this course continues with the basic concepts of computer aided design (CAD) and drafting. Course studies will be completed using SolidWorks CAD software. Studies include set-up workspace, sketches, features and drawings. Working in both two- and three dimensions as well as in solids, students will learn the operating system, command codes, file menu, and symbol library of an industry standard, computer aided design and drafting system. Focus will be on sheet metal, weldments, and gears and gear-mates as used in manufacturing. Students have the opportunity to take SolidWorks CSWA (Certified SolidWorks Associate) exam at end of this term. Prerequisite: MET121.

MET123 (3 credits)
CAD III: Mechanical (SolidWorks)
As the third course in a three-term series, this is an elective in the Manufacturing Engineering Technology program. Students will use the techniques learned in MET121 and MET122 to reverse engineer an advanced part/project, creating solid models and modifying those models as needed; and the creation of assemblies, and industry standard mechanical drawings. Coursework will focus on continuing to develop techniques in preparing industry standard accurate, legible drawings and solid models. Students will have the opportunity to take the SolidWorks CSWA (Certified SolidWorks Associate) exam at the end of the term. Prerequisite: MET122.

MET160 (3 credits)
Materials and Metallurgy
Studies basic metallurgy as it relates to manufacturing processes. Course introduces the identification of ferrous metals and non-ferrous metals, as well as other materials used in the manufacturing industry. Study includes mechanical and physical properties, powder metallurgy, heat treatment, alloying, crystalline structures, effects of machining, casting processes, and testing processes. Prerequisites: MTH20 and RD90 or WR91 or designated placement scores. Recommended prerequisite: MFG101.

MET165 (3 credits)
Materials Engineering and Metallurgy
Introduces students to the characteristics of materials that are important in design, and the role of quality control in working with materials. Topics include: material quality control, tensile strength analysis, data acquisition systems, materials design, compression testing and analysis, shear and hardness testing and analysis, and design evaluation. Course also covers the principles of non-ferrous and ferrous metals, and introduces the properties, elements, and types of nonferrous and ferrous materials commonly employed in metal manufacturing. Lessons cover the basics of the non-ferrous and ferrous material manufacturing process, the elements used to create these materials, the main types of non-ferrous and ferrous materials and their properties, and the common tests used to measure metal properties.
