Degree Overview

EMET student in class

The Bachelor of Science in Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology (BSEMET) is designed to teach students the theory and application of a broad range of electrical, mechanical, computer, control, and instrumentation technologies that are used in today's industrial and consulting settings.

 The program achieves its educational learning objectives by developing students’ abilities to accomplish a variety of specific outcomes while they are enrolled in the degree program.  By achieving these outcomes as students, graduates of the EMET program are assured of having:

1. an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of their disciplines to broadly-defined electro-mechanical engineering technology activities

2. an ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to electro-mechanical engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies

3. an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes

4. an ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined electro-mechanical engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives

5. an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team

6. an ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined electro-mechanical engineering technology problems

7. an ability to communicate effectively regarding broadly-defined electro-mechanical engineering technology activities

8. an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development

9. an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity

10. a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context

11. a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement

12. an ability to use computer-aided drafting or design tools to prepare graphical representations of electro-mechanical systems

13. an ability to use circuit analysis, analog and digital electronics, basic instrumentation, and computers to aid in the characterization, analysis, and troubleshooting of electro-mechanical systems

14. an ability to use statics, dynamics (or applied mechanics), strength of materials, engineering materials, engineering standards, and manufacturing processes to aid in the characterization, analysis, and troubleshooting of electro-mechanical systems

15. an ability to use appropriate computer programming languages for operating electro-mechanical systems

16. an ability to use electrical/electronic devices such as amplifiers, motors, relays,  power systems, and computer and instrumentation systems for applied design, operation, or troubleshooting electro-mechanical systems

17. an ability to use advanced topics in engineering mechanics, engineering materials, and fluid mechanics for applied design, operation, or troubleshooting of electro-mechanical systems.

18. an ability to use basic knowledge of control systems for the applied design, operation, or troubleshooting of electro-mechanical systems

19. an ability to use differential and integral calculus, as a minimum, to characterize the static and dynamic performance of electro-mechanical systems

20. an ability to use appropriate management techniques in the investigation, analysis, and design of electro-mechanical systems

The growing application of automated systems across all sectors of business and industry has created a demand for individuals skilled in the design, application, operation and maintenance of electromechanical systems. An inherent feature of these systems is that they incorporate electrical, electronic, mechanical, instrumentation, and control elements, and individuals working with these systems must be skilled in all of those disciplines. It is exactly these skill sets that the EMET program is designed to provide, and graduates from the program, with hands-on experience in all these technologies, are prepared immediately to perform these duties, regardless of the particular industrial sector.
