Patrick Melvin (BS.EET), Ronnie Corey (AE.MEC), and Quinn Munns (BS.EET) represented Vermont Tech at the annual Vermont Society of Engineers (VSE) Golf Tournament at Cedar Knoll Country Club in Hinesburg, Vermont on September 25, 2020. The annual VSE tournament raises funds for scholarships to engineering students at Vermont Tech, Norwich University, and the University of Vermont. Although most contestants are…
Mechanical Engineering Technology
Few fields of study will offer you a wider range of career opportunities than mechanical engineering technology. Mechanical engineering technicians provide an indispensable link between the professional engineer involved with research, design, and development, and the skilled craftsperson who manufactures and assembles the high-technology devices that enable people, companies, and nations to function every day.
You will learn how to communicate across the industry; produce sketches and drawings used in the manufacture of machines; analyze forces imposed upon mechanical objects; determine appropriate sizes and materials for mechanical parts; and test finished assemblies for proper design. You’ll graduate able to calculate the energy requirements of machines and analyze the fluid systems that control them. You’ll be able to manage the problem of heat in mechanical appliances and to control mechanisms by the use of electricity and electronics. You will be prepared to be that indispensable link.
Graduates of this program are well-prepared for admission to Vermont Tech’s Bachelor of Science programs in Manufacturing Engineering Technology, Electromechanical Engineering Technology, Renewable Energy Technology, and Business Technology & Management.
A student with an Associate of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering Technology will be able to:
- Apply knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve well-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline
- Design solutions for well-defined technical problems and assist with the engineering design of systems, components, or processes appropriate to the discipline
- Apply written, oral, and graphical communication in well-defined technical and non-technical environments and identify and use appropriate technical literature
- Conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and analyze and interpret results
- Function effectively as a member of a technical team
Educational objectives that are demonstrated during their workforce careers include:
- Engineering skills: develop a successful career in manufacturing, design, specification, installation, testing, operation, maintenance, sales, or documentation of mechanical systems
- Professional skills: employ strong communication and teamwork skills and participate productively on professional teams of engineers, technicians, managers, and skilled production workers
- Design skills: utilize technical knowledge and skills to effectively design, fabricate, manufacture, and maintain industrial and consumer systems and products
- Innovation skills: continuously develop as a professional; adapt and stay current in their field

by Zoe Newmarco Vermont Technical College President Pat Moulton’s goals for the Randolph Center campus raised eyebrows, when a WCAX report quoted her as planning to “shrink” VTC’s footprint in Randolph Center while expanding the Williston campus. Moulton explained that her comment came in relation to a plan VTC administrators are working on to develop as part of a Vermont…
