Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology

South Georgia State College Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology (BSMET) graduates can work in many industries, and their work varies by industry and function. BSMET graduates will be able to apply the knowledge and skills they have learned in a number of local industries in the region. Job placement opportunities will exist in industries that rely on mechanical engineering consultations, product and materials testing, drafting and computer graphics and manufacturing and quality management. The BSMET program consists of 124 semester hours, which could include hours earned in pursuit of an Associate Degree.

The Program

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology program is a win-win for South Georgia State College students and the community. Local, state and national employers look for personnel skilled in a wide range of technical manufacturing design, development, operation and evaluation abilities. Students want a program that will provide them with the skills needed in a local attractively-priced venue, especially for those geographically place-bound. The program does both and will raise the educational and quality of living levels of regional employees while addressing employer needs and boosting the regional economy.

SGSC drew on existing and new curriculum and faculty resources to create a baccalaureate degree focused on developing professionals with skills suitable for a variety of employment settings. The connections with regional employers to enhance student development of skilled knowledge and hands-on experience in high-demand career fields will be invaluable for the community and the students.

The Future for Graduates

Mechanical Engineering Technology graduates work in many industries, and their work varies by industry and function. SGSC graduates will be able to apply the knowledge and skills they have learned in a number of industries in the region. Job placement opportunities will exist in industries that rely on mechanical engineering consultations, product and materials testing, drafting and computer graphics and manufacturing and quality management. The good news is the national median annual wage for mechanical engineering technicians in May 2018 was $56,250 making this a career option with a return on their educational investment.
