Purpose: Mechanical Engineering Technology is a great fit for students who want to take a hands-on approach to mechanical engineering. Mechanical Engineering Technologists participate in the design, testing, and manufacturing of industrial machinery, consumer products, engines and other equipment. Virginia Peninsula’s AAS in Mechanical Engineering Technology program prepares students for the Siemens Mechatronics Level I Certification Exam. The curriculum is grounded in math, science and engineering principles with practical lessons in computer-aided drawing and design, composite materials, hydraulics, and other technical areas.
Course Offerings: Primarily at the Hampton Campus both daytime and evening. Some classes are offered in distance and hybrid format.
Articulation Agreement: Students who are interested in transferring to Old Dominion University to continue AAS Mechanical Engineering w/Mechanical Design Specialization plan should meet with Academic Advising early to determine and discuss requirements.
