I've recently been looking at Purdue, and one of the programs that caught my eye was Mechanical Engineering Technology. Does anyone have any insight on this (or any of the "technology") programs versus regular engineering? They claim the technology degree is more hands on, and more about implementation than theoretical stuff. Of course, that's the College of Technology staff talking, and I'm sure students of the College of Engineering might say differently. Also, the MechE Tech degree is a lot less math than the MechE degree. So would you guys recommend this program? I doubt I'd get in to Purdue's Engineering program, so is this a good alternative if you still would like to design and create? I'd love to work in the Automotive industry or for an Aeronautical type company (Lockheed, Boeing).
