Manufacturing Engineering Technology

  • Program Prerequisite: Not required.
  • Minor: Not required.
  • Grade Requirements: A grade of “C” or better in all major courses, support courses, and technical electives is required (a grade of “C-” is not acceptable) in addition to an overall GPA for all courses of 2.00 or higher. Also refer to the general grade requirements for graduation in the Degree Requirements  section of this catalog.  Seniors may petition to have one C- allowed in major and support courses.  Approval from the Program Coordinator and Department Chair is required.
  • Credit Hour Requirements: Credit hours vary as shown for different concentration areas: the BS in Manufacturing Engineering Technology with a Production Operations and Control Concentration requires 126.5 credit hours, the BS in Manufacturing Engineering Technology with a Welding Concentration requires 123.5 credit hours, and the BS in Manufacturing Engineering Technology with a Plastics and Composites Concentration requires 125.5 credit hours. A total of 40 upper division credit hours is also required (courses numbered 3000 and above). Transfer students are required to take a minimum of 30 credit hours at Weber State University.
  • Program Code: Manufacturing (8037BS), with Concentration in Plastics & Composites (8058), Production Ops & Controls (8059), or Welding (8060).
  • CIPC: Manufacturing (150613), with Concentration in Plastics & Composites (150607), Production Ops & Controls (150613),or Welding (150614).


All Manufacturing Engineering Technology students are required to meet with their faculty advisor at least annually for course and program advisement. Please call the department secretary at 801-626-6305 for the name of your advisor and to schedule an appointment.
