About the Program
The Mechanical Systems Dynamics Certificate is a two-semester (24 credit hour) program that addresses the fundamentals of dynamic mechanical systems and related industrial skills. Students are eligible to enroll in this program only after the basic prerequisites for individual courses within the certificate are met. The program covers basic thermodynamic principles, the fundamentals of dynamics and kinematics, basic hydraulics and pneumatics, an introduction to machine tooling, the relative properties of different plastics, basic computer modeling, and electrical technology. This certificate is designed both for the students needing a basic introduction to mechanical technology to qualify for an entry-level job in a factory or other production facility.
Certificate curricula are reviewed and updated periodically in response to community and industry demands. The student is cautioned to discuss certificate choices and course selections with an Engineering Advisor before each registration cycle.
Learning experiences for students in Engineering Technology programs are provided at the Northeast Campus in classrooms and state-of-the-art labs in the Engineering Technology and Science Classroom Building.
