Penn State Erie, The Behrend College 
2007-08 METBD Graduates and Faculty
Mechanical Engineering Technology
We are proud of our Baccalaureate Seniors! They are hard working men and women who are all hoping to better prepare themselves for a career in the more practical and applied aspects of engineering. Most of our juniors & seniors take the 8 hour- EIT/FE (Engineer-in-Training /  Fundamentals of Engineering Exam) each year in April. To improve their career preparation, their history of part-time and/or full time summer employment in engineering related work provides  very important experiences.  In addition, many seniors have accomplished a special project with local industry as described in Senior Capstone Projects or Industrial Internships

Graduates: for any updates, please email please email Mr.Lobaugh at or Mr. Johnson
