Program Mission

A mission statement is a brief description of an organization's fundamental purpose and primary objectives. In short, a mission statement answers the question, "Why do we exist?" The mission of the MET program was developed with this in mind and is shown below.

MET Mission Statement

ourmissionThe mission of the Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) program is to provide an outstanding undergraduate educational program emphasizing sound application of scientific and engineering knowledge combined with technical skills to produce graduates who will become responsible, ethical, and contributing leaders in industry and government with the lifelong learning skills necessary to keep abreast of advancing technology.

chartIn a hierachical organization, such as The University of Toledo, the missions of the various units should be compatible. They should mesh together and support each other. This is true for the organizational structure in which the MET program resides. Mission statements for related organizational units (Department, College and University) are provided below for review.

Department of Engineering Technology Mission

The mission of the Engineering Technology Department is to:

  • provide an educational program of recognized quality in engineering technology that directs students toward achieving their educational objectives, professional goals, and a commitment to life-long learning,
  • serve a diverse population and, as a student-focused department, prepare the students to function in a global economy,
  • create an environment in which faculty, students and alumni can utilize their skills to make positive contributions to society.
