Penn State Erie, The Behrend College 
2012-13 Graduates and Faculty
Mechanical Engineering Technology
We are proud of our Associate Degree and Baccalaureate Degree graduates! 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 Mr. Johnson
or Mr.Evans at
