To support the mission, the following educational objectives exist. During the first few years after graduation, students of the Mechanical Engineering Technology program
will meet the following objectives:
Nuclear Technology Option:
- Identify, formulate and solve mechanical and technical problems which include the steps of planning, specification development, design, analysis, procurement of equipment and materials, implementation, and performance verification.
- Conduct necessary engineering experiments, make observations, collect and analyze data, and formulate conclusions.
- Understand the ethical and societal impact of engineering solutions.
- Communicate and function effectively and productively both as an individual and as part of an engineering team.
- Recognize the need for and have the desire to engage in life-long learning.
The Nuclear Engineering Technology option is a special program available only to graduates of the U. S. Navy Nuclear Power School graduates of Nuclear Reactor Operator training atDominion Energy. These students receive advanced standing credits that apply to the MET degree based on their professional education in nuclear power systems.
