Mechanical Technologists are employed in a variety of industries, ensuring the smooth, effective operation of the systems that are taken for granted in everyday life. FLCC's Mechanical Technology degree program prepares students to enter the workforce after graduation to aid engineers with the design, development, testing, and manufacturing of industrial machinery and consumer products.
FLCC's Mechanical Technology degree program provides you the technical skills that are required for entry-level positions in the field of mechanical drafter or designer, or in the area of a manufacturing, assembly or test technician. This program prepares you to use 2D and 3D CAD (computer-aided design and drafting) software as a design, drafting, and presentation tool in the workforce.
Gain Real-World Experience in Manufacturing
As a student in this program, you'll have the opportunity to work for a semester or more at a manufacturing site applying the skills you have developed to real-world applications. In your paid experience, you'll perform a variety of work assignments, which will be reviewed by an on-site mentor and FLCC faculty.
The lead instructor and advisor of the Mechanical Technology program is Jack Riley. Jack brings a wealth of mechanical design experience in commercial, consumer, and government product design to the classroom.
