Manufacturing Engineering Technology students focus on courses which develop their background in fabrication, metrology, quality control, industrial statistics/six sigma, manufacturing management, plastics processing, and packaging. The subjects covered in the core curriculum include established and modern manufacturing processes, metrology, material science, applied manufacturing/engineering software, computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), automated controls (Programmable Logic Controls (PLCs), microprocessors, robotics, electrical circuits and electronics principles, quality control, engineering economics, and production and operations management.

The Manufacturing Engineering Technology (MNET) program is a full four-year curriculum, which also provides an opportunity for transfer students with A.A.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering Technology to complete their baccalaureate degree.  In the case of all students, both four-year and transfer, a minimum of 120 credits is required for graduation. (see Curriculum)

Transfer From AAS program

NJIT has articulation agreements with a number of AAS programs in the state. A list of agreements can be found at Students who expect to transfer to the junior year of the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (B.S.E.T.) program would have their courses correlated to the existing MNET program curriculum: Manufacturing Engineering Technology (MNET) Program.
