Electromechanical Engineering Technology

The Electromechanical Engineering Technology curriculum provides a solid technical base in engineering science fundamentals and provides competency in automation, controls, motion mechanics, solid mechanics, fluid power, electrical systems, electronics and computer integrated systems. In the more advanced classes students will focus on automation and data systems, with design and control, quality and management systems and industrial/business information technology systems.

The Electromechanical Engineering Technology (EMT) program was specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of world class automated manufacturing and process industries. The program introduces and develops proficiency in:

  • System Integration

  • Automation Solutions

  • Quality Systems and Data Acquisition

  • Industrial Data and Control Networks

  • Product and Systems Management

  • Technical and Quality Documentation

  • Customer and Product Service


Curriculum is based on the 2023-24 Undergraduate Bulletin
