Why Earn a certificate in Manufacturing Engineering Technology?

The Mechanical Engineering Technology program in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of North Texas offers a Certificate in Manufacturing Engineering Technology (MFET).

The MFET training in advanced equipment along with the completion of practical MFET studies provides valuable technical skills to UNT’s engineering graduates for future careers and allows them to be recognized professionally by some of the nation’s top companies.

Manufacturing Engineering Technology Certificate Highlights

You'll get to engage in real world research that involves current industry issues.
The UNT Engineering Manufacturing Facility (EMF) is dedicated to offering advanced manufacturing services like fabrication of mechanical prototypes, proof of concepts for machinery, 3D printing, laser engraving and CNC precision machining.
MFET faculty members have a wide array of research interests, affording students the opportunity to choose from a variety of areas for their projects in the capstone course sequence.
Such projects can also become the basis for a Project or Thesis for students pursuing the GradTrack or 5-year BS/MS program.
Some Research interests include quality assurance, materials engineering, metal and ceramic matrix composites, plastics processing, surface coatings, welding and joining, micro manufacturing, metrology, high performance machining and additive Manufacturing.
Students pursuing the Certificate in Manufacturing Engineering Technologies have a number of state-of-the-art machines and laboratories at their fingertips.
