This program emphasizes those skills required by the highly competitive field of electro-mechanical technology. At the completion of the program, graduates will be engaged in designing, manufacturing, inspecting, operating, and maintaining various types of electro-mechanical systems. Within the mechanical component, manufacturing processes such as CNC and design aspects are emphasized. Within the electrical component, skills are developed in circuits, AC/DC machinery, and industrial programmable controller applications.
Upon successful completion of the degree in electro-mechanical engineering, the graduate will be able to:
Demonstrate professional conduct and interpersonal communication skills (verbal and written) with coworkers and other technical personnel.
Demonstrate the ability to apply mathematical and geometric concepts.
Demonstrate knowledge of electrical principles and AC/DC machinery.
Demonstrate knowledge of manufacturing processes on different machines, tools and materials by operating conventional and CNC equipment.
Apply concepts of statics to analyze and compute forces on and in structures that are at rest or moving with uniform velocity.
Demonstrate knowledge of principles of physics.
Demonstrate proficiency in industrial applications of programmable logic controllers.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR BACCALAUREATE STUDIES
Students who successfully complete the electro-mechanical major may continue their studies toward a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical or Manufacturing Engineering Technology and/or Industrial Technology at various universities. Further information regarding any of these opportunities is available through the office of the dean or transfer coordinator.
