Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology

Today’s industries need people who can work on systems, machines, and products that have both electrical and mechanical elements. The Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology (BS EMET) degree program provides basic coverage in all major areas of technology involved in the operation and control of manufacturing and production processes, including instrumentation and monitoring methods; principles of machine design; automated control techniques; thermal and fluid sciences; computerized manufacturing systems; principles of electrical and electronic circuit operation; computer-aided drafting and design; economics of production; and statistical analysis and quality control.

This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.

The Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology degree is offered at the following locations: AltoonaBerksNew Kensington, and York. 

Program Educational Objectives
