112 Manufacturing Technology Associate of Applied Science Manufacturing Engineering Technology – MAET2 The Manufacturing Engineering Technology MET program is a broad-based general science degree designed to prepare students for careers in the chemical processing industry, manufacturing, and advanced technology. The Manufactur- ing Engineering Technology MET program is a popular op- tion found at fourteen universities in the State of Texas. Graduates from the Manufacturing Engineering Technology MET AAS program would have five optional; (1) transfer to a 4-year engineering program, (2) transfer to a 4-year engi- neering technology program, (3) seek employment as an en- gineering technician, (4) seek employment as a process technician, research technician, laboratory technician or (5) transfer to a 4-year school offering a BS in Technology. Grad- uates from this program will have a solid foundation in mathematics, physics, and chemistry combined with a good understanding of the equipment and technology associated with the operation of the manufacturing industry. Optional career paths could include chemistry, safety, pharmaceuti- cals, power generation, or engineering. The program will comply with the American Chemical Society's voluntary standards and with the Technology Accreditation Commis- sion of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technol- ogy in Engineering Technology.
