Manufacturing Engineering Technology
Manufacturing a brighter future
In the design lab or on the production floor, our Manufacturing Engineering Technology majors are the ones that make things happen – the applied expert between the engineer and the craftsman.
Our program prepares students for exciting careers in research and development, engineering, materials testing, quality control and more. With three different emphasis areas in Metal Casting, Design and Advanced Manufacturing, you can choose classes that fit your goals and interests.
As a student, you’ll have the chance to work in our outstanding facilities, including: a full production lab, our internationally recognized Metal Casting Center, and the Additive Manufacturing Center, which is a recognized world leader in research and development in the additive manufacturing industry.

Choose Your Area of Emphasis
The advanced manufacturing emphasis gives heightened focus to the content areas of advanced manufacturing processes, production management and computer-aided manufacturing.
With an emphasis in computer-aided drafting and design, students receive training in engineering analysis, product research and development, as well as mathematics, science, manufacturing management, industrial materials and processes.
The metal casting emphasis is one of 21 programs on the North American continent that have been recognized by the Foundry Educational Foundation as a Certified School. Students learn from respected professionals in the metal casting field.
I worked at the UNI Metal Casting Center for four years, and helped design, build and test metal casting materials, processes and molds, which were used by private companies and the U.S. military.
Connecting you with Industry
The Department of Applied Engineering & Technical Management has forged strong connections with industry partners in Iowa, including big-name companies such John Deere, Collins Aerospace and Vermeer. In an average year, nearly 100 employers from around the state, and the Midwest, come to campus to visit with our students, and recruit them for full-time positions.
