There are approximately 85 4-year institutions in the U.S. with programs in mechanical engineering technology accredited by TAC of ABET. There are also approximately 28 TAC of ABET-accredited 4-year programs in manufacturing engineering technology. Most of these mechanical and manufacturing engineering technology programs require their students to take at least one class in computing or electronics. The purpose of this paper is to provide a descriptive comparison of these 4-year programs in mechanical and manufacturing engineering technology, focusing on the computing and electronics requirements for their students. The details include courses, course titles, and topics covered.
