Collaboration between E and ET ProgramsAbstractXXXX University (XXU) located in XXXX and University of XXXX (XXX) entered into apartnership in February 2008 to deliver a mechanical engineering (ME) program in its entirety onthe XXU campus. The second cohort of ME students graduated this past May. The XXXX MEPartnership Program enables students to earn a Bachelor of Science in ME (BSME) degree andcomplete the entire program in residence at XXU. The first two years of classes are offered byXXU and taught by XXU faculty. Upper-level ME classes are offered by XXX and taught byXXX faculty on the campus of XXU. The successful student completing all requirements thenearns the BSME degree from XXXX.In collaboration with the Partnership, XXU began offering a 4-year Mechanical EngineeringTechnology (MET) Program (BSMET) in January 2010. XXU is only one of a handful ofuniversities nationwide that offer this array of degrees under a single umbrella. The first twoyears of the curriculum associated with both the ME and MET programs are nearly identical,providing flexibility to students that might be unsure of their career path. The first cohort ofMET students graduated this past May.The purpose of this paper is to provide a description of the collaboration between the E and ETPrograms and how a partnership such as this might be extended into other venues.
