People, knowledge, and technologies
      bringing world-class products from
              concept to market

                     Manufacturing and mechanical engineering technology is
                     for doers, people who like to get things done. Maybe even
                     get your hands dirty once in a while. MMET graduates are
                     the people who turn designs into products, who find better
                     ways to make cell phones, cars, and air planes, automate an
                     industrial process, or improve the design of products.

                     Your MMET program starts with mathematics and physics,
                     history and English, chemistry and kinesiology. While you are
                     getting these basics out of the way, we’ll start preparing you
                     for engineering technology courses such as:
                        •   materials                      •   strength of materials
                        •   machining                      •   mechanics
                        •   welding                        •   quality engineering
                        •   micro/nano manufacturing       •   operations management
                        •   information systems            •   applied thermal sciences
                        •   robotics and automation        •   fluid power technology
                        •   3-D modeling                   •   mechanical design
                        •   design-for-manufacturability       applications

                     These courses will get you to a degree that will prepare you
                     for a world of opportunities.

                     Our graduates are encouraged to take part in co-op education
                     opportunities and internships, helping many students with
                     their education and securing employment after graduation.
Good      when you graduate, with great salaries

                  When you graduate from Texas A&M’s MMET program, you’ll have
                   access to a whole world of possibilities.

                       You’ll find Texas A&M MMET grads working for excellent
                        salaries at the biggest and best manufacturing and tech-
                          nology companies. There’s a reason – these companies
                             want Texas A&M MMET grads because they know those
                               grads have the academic background and hands-on
                                experience they need.

                                   Don’t just take our word for it. Companies like
                                    Boeing, ExxonMobil, Ford, and Motorola have
                                      hired our graduates.

Everybody talks about
ds-on education
    Our learning laboratories do our talking for us.
    Laboratories do much to enhance engineering technology classes. Labs give students
    a deeper understanding of information presented in lectures and provide hands-on
    experience for real-world jobs. We have state-of-the-art equipment that is used by
    the companies that hire our graduates. When you want to understand manufacturing
    processes and the technology that makes them work, our learning laboratories put you
    in the driver’s seat.

         Micro-Nano Manufacturing (MnM) Laboratory
         In the Micro/Nano Manufacturing Laboratory, you’ll learn the technologies
         to fabricate and quantify the sub-miniature devices that are transforming
         biomedical science, aerospace and other high-tech fields. For instance,
         microrobotic surgical devices that combine nano-, wireless and information
         technology may soon be helping doctors perform surgery inside your body
         without the stress and risk of conventional surgery. Our MnM Lab gives you
         hands-on experience with this futuristic technology .

         Rockwell Automation Laboratory and System Integration Laboratory
         The Rockwell Automation Laboratory actually consists of two labs: the
         Automation Laboratory and the System Integration Laboratory. Students learn
         basic (component-level) knowledge and skills in the Automation Laboratory; then
         develop integrated (system-level) knowledge by working in the System Integration
         Laboratory. The lab supports automation and control education for approx-
         imately one-fourth of the Engineering Technology and Industrial Distribution
         department’s undergraduates.

CNC Haas Computer-Aided Design/
Manufacturing Laboratory
The CAD/CAM laboratory emphasizes
Computer-Aided Design and Com-
puter-Aided Manufacturing. Labora-
tory exercises include several part and
tool computer designs and machining
on computer controlled machines. Stu-
dents generate electronic and printed
drawings, process sheets showing
machining operations, required tool
lists, and the machine coding required
to machine their tools and parts.
The labortory is equipped with soft-
ware for 3-D modeling, finite element
analysis, design-for manufacturing,
process planning and computer-aided
manufacturing. It emphasizes integrat-
ing these functions and execution sys-
tems on the shop floor. The laboratory
is equipped with new CNC vertical mills
and lathes in collaboration with Haas
Automation Educational Program. It has
high performance tooling donated in
partnership with ISCAR.

The Texas Aggie
                  There’s more to a college education than the time
                  you spend in class. At Texas A&M University, you’ll find
                  students from all over the United States and all over
                  the world — all 50 states and 115 other countries,
                  when we counted last.

                  You’ll have your pick of more than 40 recognized stu-
                  dent organizations in engineering — 800 altogether
                  campuswide. The National Association of Engineering
                  Student Councils has judged Texas A&M’s Student
                  Engineers Council the “most exemplary” engineering
                  student council in the United States.
