Overview

The Materials Engineering Technology program at Penn State DuBois was instituted in 1991 and offers technical courses that expose the student to the "materials" industry, as well as provide knowledge in the use of computers, electronics, and drafting.

Powdered metals, ceramics, and composites have grown in popularity because of the increased reliability of products manufactured using these non-traditional methods and their efficient use of materials and energy resources. Since we are located near St. Mary's, the powder metal capital of the world, a great deal of our course work involves "powder metallurgy" and "particulate science."  Graduates of this program are sought "worldwide" for their knowledge and expertise in this unique manufacturing process.
