The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) marketable skills initiative is part of the state’s 60x30TX plan and was designed to help students articulate their skills to employers.  Marketable skills are those skills valued by employers and/or graduate programs that can be applied in a variety of work or education settings and may include interpersonal, cognitive, and applied skill areas.

The BS in Mechanical Engineering Technology is designed to provide graduates with the following marketable skills:

  • Advanced mechanical discipline knowledge.
  • Application of design and analysis concepts to mechanical engineering and technology.
  • Familiarity with manufacturing processes and equipment.
  • Knowledge of industry standards, quality assurance, and ethics.
  • Critical thinking skills.
  • Ability to logically solve practical problems.
