Mechanical Engineering Technologies
If you have an interest in how things work (or how to make them work better) and you enjoy learning and using mathematics on a daily basis, this program is for you. It is specifically designed for individuals with little to no formal training in the Mechanical Engineering discipline. If you are already a draftsman, CAD operator or Mechanical Designer, this is the perfect program to move you into an associate engineering role.
This program follows the course requirements of a typical Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Program, at a fraction of the cost and time. Our core Engineering specific courses have been developed by over 150 internationally known, accredited colleges & universities including, but not limited to, MIT, Boston University (BU), Harvard University, UC Berkley and more. The lecturers are the same ones who developed and/or deliver the courses at the same Universities. Students will receive a certificate of completion by the associated College or University and Visible Edge Institute, a Post-Secondary Educational Institution licensed by the Department of Education, will Certify that the student completed the course and apply an actual letter grade to their transcript.
In the first half of this program, you will begin your studies with an introduction to Mechanical Engineering course. Next you will be introduced to a state-of-the-art CAD system, SolidWorks, learning how to create 3D parametric geometry. This is a tool you will use throughout this program. For those without a drafting background there is an optional Engineering Drawing & Graphics course.
You will then embark on Part 1 of 4 of an Overview of Manufacturing Processes and Sciences (for details on this 4-part series please see our “Production Technologies” program).
Progressing through the program you will alternate between more challenging CAD functions and dive deeper into how the designs you engineer and create will be made.
Mathematics ranging from Algebra, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus I &, II will also be interwoven into the curriculum. We also offer CLEP tests for mathematics up to Calculus I. If successfully completed, you may move on to the next required math course while getting college credit that will be recognized by most colleges and universities. All this before program completion.
Rounding out the first half of the program you will explore the Fundamentals of Physics, Mechanical Systems and Machine Design and how to Design for Manufacturing (DFM) and Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing).
You will be completing this part of program with an industry recognized Certification in SolidWorks (CSWA) to show prospective employers that you are a proficient 3D Parametric Solid Modeler & Detailer using an industry standard 3D Mechanical Computer Aided Design (MCAD) system. Our partnership with the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) allows our students to also attain the industry recognized Certified Manufacturing Associate (CMfgA) & Certified Manufacturing Technologist (CMfgT) credentials. In the second half of the program, you will dive into Calculus III & Differential Equations, Engineering Mechanics: Statics & Dynamics, Strength of Materials, Materials Science, Thermodynamics, System Dynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer and other core engineering courses plus electives. Certificates of completion from several prominent Colleges and Universities will be included for many of the courses. For those electing to progress beyond the base Certificate Program, we also offer a wide range of in demand and unique electives that will increase your employment marketability over other traditionally trained candidates.
