The Electromechanical Technology concentration under the Engineering Technology degree program prepares individuals for employment in many areas of business and industry. The curriculum is balanced between industrial electricity and industrial mechanics, providing graduates with a multitude of opportunities. Graduates may work as electromechanical technicians, working in areas that include basic electrical troubleshooting and maintenance, mechanical systems design and repair, and state of the art machine automation. They may work as programmers of automated manufacturing cells, programmable logic controller programmers and troubleshooters, or as electromechanical technicians in advanced manufacturing operations.

Graduates of the program will be skilled in electronics troubleshooting, reading electrical schematics, using electrical measuring equipment, installing and troubleshooting programmable logic controller hardware and software, three-phase power and motor control, and understanding electrical/electronics terminology. They will also be skilled in fluid power systems, mechanical power transmission, basic welding, industrial piping and pump applications, and basic millwright principles. These skills are the basic skills needed by entry level electromechanical technicians.

This program is designed for the student who does not intend to transfer to a baccalaureate degree program.
