The Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering has partnered with Rowan College of South Jersey (RCSJ) to establish South Jersey’s first four-year Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) program. The B.S. in Mechanical Engineering Technology is a four-year, career-oriented, hands-on degree program. 

The comprehensive nature of the Mechanical Engineering Technology program, opens a wide-variety of career paths for graduates such as:

Designing and developing products, machines, and processes



Technical sales 

Industries that hire mechanical engineering technologists include transportation, power, climate control, machine design, manufacturing, materials, and automation.

The new Mechanical Engineering Technology program has many innovative features that make it unique, including Engineering Technology Clinics. These eight-semester Engineering Technology Clinics are modeled after Rowan’s hallmark Engineering Clinics, which provide students with a truly hands-on, interdisciplinary design and development experience on real-world problems. The curriculum includes several strategically selected and designed courses such as (select 3-4 courses that would be of interest).

The Mechanical Engineering Technology program is offered jointly by Rowan College of South Jersey (RCSJ) and Rowan University, with the first two years of coursework delivered by RCSJ faculty on the RCSJ campus in Vineland, NJ, and the final two years delivered by faculty from Rowan University’s Department of Mechanical Engineering on the University’s Glassboro Campus.  

As a result of this unique partnership, students receive the cost-effectiveness of completing their first two years at RCSJ, along with access to all of Rowan University’s resources, modern laboratory facilities, and state-of-the-art equipment and instrumentation starting in their junior year.
