College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture
BS in Electromechanical Engineering Technology
Our electromechanical engineering technology (EMET) program is an interdisciplinary hands-on engineering technology program that incorporates elements of both electrical and mechanical systems.
About the Major
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.
About the Automation Minor
If you're curious to learn hands-on skills in both electrical and mechanical systems, and not currently majoring in electromechanical engineering technology, the automation minor is the best option for you. Learn more.
About the Mechanical Engineering Technology Minor
A minor in mechanical engineering technology is available for students in programs other than MET and ME who have interests and abilities in mechanical engineering technology. Students must announce their intention to minor in mechanical engineering technology any time prior to the end of their junior year. Learn more.

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.
Our electromechanical engineering technology (EMET) program is designed to prepare you for career success.
Alumni move on to become members of engineering teams to help solve multidisciplinary problems in industry and government. Work in areas like electronic instrumentation, quality and testing, process control, alternative energy systems, robotics, manufacturing, automated control systems, and product sales and service with a background in electromechanical engineering technology.
Our graduates work in wide range of industries using skills ranging from basic circuit theory and complex signals to systems and project management. Companies include Goodrich, Otis Elevator, Sikorsky, and Pratt & Whitney.
BS, Electromechanical Engineering Technology, 2021
The electromechanical engineering program offered a hands-on approach to mechanical and electrical engineering while still providing the necessary theory of mechanical engineering and electrical engineering. During my internship at Bauer, I was able to work with engineers of different backgrounds and concentrations, from electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, manufacturing engineers to even professional engineers.
AccreditationThe Electromechanical Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org
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.
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.
