Electromechanical Engineering Technology (EMET) is an interdisciplinary hands-on engineering technology program that incorporates elements of both electronics and mechanical engineering technology. The electronics component of the curriculum includes course work in areas such as analog and digital circuits, semiconductor devices and electronics, instrumentation, data acquisition, and control systems. The mechanical component consists of traditional engineering sciences including, manufacturing processes, statics, mechanics, materials, machine design and fluid mechanics. Integration of the electronics and mechanical components starts in the first semester and continues throughout the curriculum with equal emphasis on both subjects in the junior year. In the senior year, students are given the opportunity to select a specialty in areas such as robotics, communication/networks, mechanical, computer, or business/management/entrepreneurship/marketing.
The EMET program prepares students to become practicing engineering technologists who can solve multidisciplinary problems in industry and government in areas such as electronic instrumentations, testing, process control, communication, computers, alternative energy systems, robotics, manufacturing, automated control systems, and product sales and service.
Graduates of the EMET program will fill the need for a growing demand from industrial and consulting companies for engineering staff members with a wide range of technical knowledge.
