This certificate prepares students to meet the demands of a career in electro-mechanical technology combining electrical circuits and mechanical technology. The program prepares students to operate, test, and maintain modern integrated electro-mechanical systems. In addition to quality classroom and laboratory instruction, students will gain real-world experiences through internship opportunities.

Technicians use state-of-the-art measuring and diagnostic equipment. While engineering principles, mathematics, and physics provide a theoretical base, practical (hands-on) experience is also important. Technicians will learn to design, build, and troubleshoot electronic circuits on their own. Those interested in the Electro-Mechanical Systems Technology certificate should have an aptitude for mathematics, science, and technical work

Program Learning Outcomes

Upon completion, the student will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate the ability to employ effective written, oral and visual communication in a technical environment by collecting, analyzing, and summarizing information and trends.
  2. Demonstrate an appreciation of the benefits that cultural diversity brings to a team.
  3. Write programs to operate sophisticated machinery.
  4. Diagnose problems and provide correct, effective solutions.
  5. Apply their growing set of skills to creatively solve technical problems.
