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.

Degree: Associate of Applied Science

Emphasis: Engineering Technology

Concentration: Electromechanical Technology

Recommended Full-Time Schedule

The following Recommended Full-Time Schedule is not a substitute for academic advising. You must meet with an academic advisor each semester to be cleared for registration. Consult with your advisor about scheduling and degree requirements. Also, see the current undergraduate catalog (catalog.ws.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives. Requirements are continually under revision, and there is no guarantee they will not be changed or revoked. Contact the academic division or department for current information.

Students planning to pursue an academic program in teaching secondary mathematics, in mathematics or in statistics may take the first two years of study directed by a mathematics advisor. Students should be fully aware of the curriculum of the institution to which they plan to transfer and must follow close advisement.

Factors that affect your progression include required Learning Support courses, completion of computer competency and your choices regarding campus location, course delivery method, and the days and times selected to take classes.

1General Education electives in each category must be chosen from approved courses listed in the General Education Program .


• Walters State students are required to meet computer competency during the first 30 hours of coursework. Students must take INFS 1010, BUSN 1360 or AGRM 2630/2631 or successfully complete a Computer Competency Exam. The Computer Competency Exam does not provide course credit. Consult your advisor. See www.ws.edu/academics/technical-ed/computer-competency/ for additional information.

•Learning Support courses must be taken every semester until completed.
