The MET program area houses three educational components:
- The bachelor of science extended major with a choice of two concentrations.
- Mechanical engineering technology minor.
- A developmental bachelor of science extended major in Aerospace Systems Engineering Technology offered through the Individualized Degree Program (IDP).
The MET program offers the bachelor of science degree Major, which is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET, Inc. The educational approach is hands-on with 63 percent of the courses requiring laboratory work in addition to lectures. It is structured with two distinct concentrations: Manufacturing and Mechanical.
For those majoring in other MSU Denver majors the MET Program also offers a minor in Mechanical Engineering Technology.
MET students are encouraged to join national organizations such as the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). The ASME student branch hosted a national Human Powered Vehicle Challenge in May 1998. The SAE sponsors a similar competition called the MiniBaja which the MET students also have competed in.
Students are encouraged to enroll in an internship program through the University’s Internship Center such as Cooperative Education gaining valuable work experience.
