About the Major

bs-electromechanical

Our Electromechanical Engineering Technology (EMET) program is an interdisciplinary hands-on engineering technology program that incorporates elements of both electrical and mechanical systems. Students in our program learn the basics in a wide range of topics from both types of systems, as well as fundamental knowledge of physics and mathematics. For electrical systems, students take courses in analog and digital circuits, electronics, microprocessors, instrumentation, and data acquisition. For mechanical systems, students learn about manufacturing, statics, materials, and fluids. Our program also trains students in the use of industry-standard technology and software making them ready to be effective on the job from day one.

Degree Requirements

The following courses and requirements are recommended for those pursuing the Electromechanical Engineering Technology program. See more in the course catalog.

Core Classes

  • ECT 242 -| Programming & Microcontroller Fundamentals
  • MET 365 | Fluid Mechanics I for Engineering Technology
  • ECT 351 | Contemporary Issues in Electronic Technology
  • ECT 364 | Industrial Instrumentation and Sensors for Engineering Technology
  • ECT 471P | Senior Design Project I for Engineering Technology

Fully Equipped Laboratories

Students in EMET have access to CETA’s laboratories which are equipped with industry standard hardware and software. Our facilities include multiple electronics labs, a machine shop, an instrumentation and automated systems lab, a robotics lab, a wind tunnel, a CNC machine, and 3D printing machines. See our labs.

Career Outlook

electromechanical

The EMET program prepares students to become effective members of an engineering team to help solve multidisciplinary problems in industry and government in areas like electronic instrumentation, quality and testing, process control, alternative energy systems, robotics, manufacturing, automated control systems, and product sales and service.

Electromechanical Engineering Technology Program Objectives and Outcomes

Program Educational Objectives (PEOs)

Electromechanical Engineering Technology graduates will develop:

  • A commitment to lifelong learning, quality and continuous improvement through the clear ability to assume increasing levels of technical and/or management responsibility or through participation in professional societies, earning advanced degrees, receiving additional training or certifications.
  • The ability to contribute to engineering teams that design and/or support effective and efficient new products, systems, and processes.
  • Leadership skills while working on teams involved in the analysis, development, implementation, or oversight of electrical and/or mechanical systems and processes.

Student Outcomes

Upon completion of the Electromechanical Engineering Technology program, the successful graduate will have:

(1) an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;

(2) an ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;

(3) an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;

(4) an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes; and

(5) an ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
