About this program
Engineering Technology requires the application of engineering and scientific knowledge and methods combined with technical skills in support of engineering activities. Graduates may work in a variety of areas including engineering design, manufacturing, field service, testing and sales and may work in management positions related to engineering, manufacturing and computer technology. The programs at UNH Manchester are designed to meet the needs of both full and part-time students with a mix of classes scheduled during the day and in the evening.
The Engineering Technology Program at UNH Manchester offers only junior- and senior-level coursework. Students admitted to this program must have an appropriate associate degree from the New Hampshire Technical Institute or an equivalent institution accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET or show academic evidence of ability to successfully complete the requirements of this calculus-based program. After two major courses, non-matriculated students must either be admitted to the program or declare that they are not planning to pursue a degree in Engineering Technology.
The UNH Manchester Engineering Technology programs are accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, Tel: 410-347-7700.

Program of Study
All entering Mechanical Engineering Technology students should have completed mathematics through Differential and Integral calculus - (Calculus I & II). Students without Calculus II will be required to take ET 630 - Analytical Methods in Technology. Students with Calculus II may have ET 630 waived, although it is recommended that it still be taken as there are other useful topic requirements covered. Students must complete a minimum of 128 credits and satisfy the University’s Discovery Program.

Mechanical engineering technology students must satisfactorily complete CHEM 403, General Chemistry, or offer evidence of equivalent coursework.
Program educational objectives are the skills and abilities graduates are expected to demonstrate during the first few years of employment. MET program educational objectives include:
1. Achieving employment in a MET-related position with appropriate title and compensation.
2. Demonstrating MET-related technical problem-solving skills.
3. Functioning effectively in diverse and multidisciplinary teams.
4. Communicating effectively with both technical and non-technical audiences.
5. Adapting to changes in technology through continuous personal and professional development.
6. Being capable of assuming increasing professional responsibility.
7. Conducting all professional activities with integrity and demonstrating a sense of social and environmental responsibility.
Student outcomes are the skills and abilities students are expected to demonstrate at graduation. Program outcomes for the MET program include:
1. Using principles and tools of science, mathematics, engineering and technology to design, implement and evaluate solutions to complex technical problems.
2. Developing mechanical systems and using results of analyses to improve designs or methodologies.
3. Successfully developing a meaningful mechanical-based project considering ethical, social, economic and technical constraints.
4. Communicating effectively both orally and in writing.
5. Working effectively in a team environment.
6. Developing research and problem-solving skills to support lifelong personal and professional development.
7. Evaluating the broader effects of technology and identifying connections between technology and economics, politics, culture, ethical responsibility, social structure, the environment and other areas.
