Wake Tech offers the following degrees, programs and learning options in Mechanical Engineering Technology:

AAS - Associate in Applied Science program (WT Course ID #: A40320A)

The Mechanical Engineering Technology curriculum provides a broad and diverse educational experience. Course work includes computer-aided drafting and design (using AutoCAD), solid modeling (using SolidWorks), applied mechanics, materials engineering, manufacturing methods and processes, computer usage, mathematics, physics, and oral and written communications. The courses will stress critical thinking, planning and problem-solving.


AAS - Associate in Applied Science program (WT Course ID #: A40320B)

The Mechanical Engineering Technology Mechatronics Concentration curriculum provides a broad and diverse educational experience, with an emphasis on courses related to the mechatronics field. Course work includes applied mechanics, analysis of electric circuits, fluid power in automation, mechatronics, computer-aided drafting and design (using AutoCAD), solid modeling (using SolidWorks), materials engineering, manufacturing methods and processes, computer usage, mathematics, physics, and oral and written communications. The courses will stress critical thinking, planning and problem-solving.


Diploma program (WT Course ID #: D40320A)

The Mechanical Engineering Technology diploma program includes course work in computer-aided drafting and design (using AutoCAD), solid modeling (using SolidWorks), materials engineering, manufacturing methods and processes, mechanisms, safety, computer usage, mathematics, and written communications.


Certificates program (WT Course ID #: C40320J)

The Electromechanical Analysis certificate program includes coursework in mechanical analysis, mechatronics, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and fluid power in automation. 

Some of the courses for the Electromechanical Analysis certificate program have one or more prerequisite courses that must be completed.


Certificates program (WT Course ID #: C40320K)

The Mechanical Analysis and Design certificate program includes coursework in mechanical analysis (Statics), programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and fluid power in automation.  Students will then apply the knowledge gained from this coursework in a capstone design project course.

Some of the courses for the Mechanical Analysis and Design certificate program have one or more prerequisite courses that must be completed.


Certificates program (WT Course ID #: C40320L)

The Mechanical Analysis and Design II certificate program builds on the Mechanical Analysis and Design certificate and includes coursework in engineering materials, strength of materials, safety, and solid modeling (using SolidWorks).

Some of the courses for the Mechanical Analysis and Design II certificate program have one or more prerequisite courses that must be completed.


Certificates program (WT Course ID #: C40320B)

The Mechanical Design certificate program introduces students to computer-aided drafting and design (CAD) and solid modeling.  Students will also explore the design of mechanisms using CAD and solid modeling.  Coursework includes computer-aided drafting and design (using AutoCAD), solid modeling (using SolidWorks), and mechanisms.

The Mechanical Design certificate program cannot be completed in a single semester because students must complete a 2-course sequence in computer-aided drafting and design.


Certificates program (WT Course ID #: C40320I)

The Mechatronics certificate program provides an overview of the technology used in the field of mechatronics.  Coursework includes mechatronics, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), fluid power in automation, and solid modeling (using SolidWorks).
