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 BSEMET program emphasizes knowledge in all fields of engineering technology related to typical manufacturing, production and assembly plant process. The program is organized as a "2+2" program for students with an associate degree in electrical or mechanical engineering technology from an Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) program. These students will enter the program as juniors and be "cross-trained" in their alternate discipline during the first half of the program. The second half of their program will be spent learning specialized technical information in selected areas of technology related to the electro-mechanical discipline.
All four years of the program can be completed at the Berks campus. In addition, the college has articulation agreements with a number of community colleges.
