If you like to invent or create, Product Design Engineering Technology is for you. The program bridges the gap between art and science, and only one other program of its kind exists in the nation.
The Product Design Engineering Technology program prepares you to effectively participate as a member of a design team, create robust mechanical designs, analyze and optimize the economics of design, create and define complex surfaces or shapes using cutting-edge computer modeling software, perform static and dynamic analyses on a design, and much more.
The program encompasses the third and fourth years of college study and culminates in a baccalaureate degree. You must complete an approved two-year associate in applied science degree within the College of Engineering Technology or an equivalent associate in applied science degree from another institution.
Employment opportunities exist across the spectrum of the product design field. Specific job titles might include product designer, layout drafter, project manager, product developer, computer-aided designer, mechanical designer or design engineering technologist.
