Penn State is one of only five schools in the nation to combine electrical and mechanical engineering technologies in a baccalaureate degree program.
The Bachelor of Science in Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology (BSEMET) program is offered in response to a growing demand from industrial and consulting companies for engineering staff members with a wide range of technical knowledge. Only four other schools in the nation, other than Penn State, offer a baccalaureate degree program combining electrical and mechanical engineering technologies, and none of these schools are located in Pennsylvania.
The primary aim of the EMET program is to provide graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to apply current methods and technology to the development, design, operation, and management of electro-mechanical systems, particularly in those industries where automated systems are prevalent. Specific educational objectives of the program are to:
- Provide graduates with a broad knowledge of the electrical, electronic, and mechanical devices, and the instrumentation, machine technology, computer applications, and control equipment applicable to electro-mechanical systems.
- Prepare graduates who can apply technical knowledge to the development, operation, control, troubleshooting, maintenance, and management of electromechanical systems.
- Prepare graduates who can communicate effectively and work collaboratively in multi-disciplinary teams.
- Prepare graduates who are productive professionals in technical careers and who continue to adapt to changes in the technical fields.
All four years of the program can be completed at the Berks campus. In addition, the college has matriculation agreements with a number of community colleges.
