Bachelor of Science in Electromechanical Engineering Technology

Graduates of this program bridge the traditional gap between engineering disciplines via an interdisciplinary program that emphasizes problem-solving in a design and manufacturing environment where the challenges are both mechanical and electrical. Successful students are prepared to bring this broader understanding to the design, development, manufacturing, and technical support of emerging products, integrating and improving both the product and the process. In larger firms, this might be as a member of the design or manufacturing team, while smaller companies might assign this role to a single individual.

The ELM program is the second leg of a 2+2 curriculum. The junior year offers courses in advanced math, science, and sensor technology, along with “crossover” courses that vary according to a student’s prior educational background.

The Bachelor of Science in Electromechanical Engineering Technology program will:
  • Provide students with the capabilities to be immediately employable and productive in the workplace
  • Provide the education so that graduates are knowledgeable in both theory and application with the ability to analyze, design, and implement electrical/electromechanical systems and products
  • Qualify graduates for positions of responsibility with the ability to apply project management techniques to electrical/electromechanical systems
  • Instill the need for creativity in the design of systems, components, or processes by having students research and develop multiple solutions to problems and use a variety of tools and techniques in their work
  • Prepare graduates for lifelong learning and adaptation to new and emerging technologies
  • Provide the base of knowledge so that graduates can continue their formal education
Students with a Bachelor of Science in Electromechanical Engineering Technology should be able to demonstrate:
  • The ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of electrical engineering technology to narrowly defined engineering technology activities
  • The ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to electrical engineering technology problems that require limited application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies
  • The ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes
  • An ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to Electrical Engineering Technology educational objectives
  • The ability to function effectively as a member or leader of a technical team
  • The ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems
  • The ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments, and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature
  • An understanding of the need for and ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development
  • An understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity
  • A knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context
  • A commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement
The program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.

The minimum number of credits required in the junior and senior years is 66 (135 total).

*General Education requirements for this program include a cumulative 24 credits, nine of which must contain a strong writing component. Some of these credits may have been earned in previous degree studies. Three of these credits are included in the ELM Senior Project courses (ELM 4701 and 4702), and three credits must be at a 3XXX level. 

**Technical electives may be selected from several areas, including computer science, mathematics, and business: CHE 1031, MAT 2533, 2021, 2533, BUS 2210, 2440 and, for EET>ELM track students only, MEC 2050 or 2130.

Note: EET to ELM track courses required of students with two-year electrical/electronic coursework; MEC to ELM track courses required of students with two-year mechanical coursework
