Engineering is the profession of applying scientific and mathematical principles, experience and critical thinking to make things that benefit society. Mechanical engineers invent, design, analyze, build and test machines, systems, structures and materials to fulfill objectives and requirements while considering the limitations imposed by practicality, regulations, safety and cost.

  • Engineering employment is projected to grow by 9 percent from 2016 to 2026. Entry level salaries range from $50,000-$65,000. Each year, CWU MET graduates have a near 100 percent job placement.

  • Mechanical Engineering students can work in design (energy-generating power plants, gas turbine engines, refrigeration and air conditioning, solar, wind energy production, systems or vehicles) or manufacturing (production planning, manufacture of products, machine programming, quality assurance, lean manufacturing).

Why this program 
  • Become one of the most sought-after professionals in the field. The CWU Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) program prepares you for a rewarding, high-demand career as a mechanical engineer.
