Program Educational Objectives
The educational objectives of the Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology program are designed to prepare graduates who, within a few years after graduation, will:
- Continue to develop and synthesize analytical skills in the specification, procurement, or integration of electromechanical systems.
- Apply empirical skills in the safe operation, testing, or maintenance of electromechanical systems.
- Collaborate effectively acting with the highest standards of professional integrity in project team activities through recognizing the global, societal, economical, and ethical contexts of their work.
- Communicate persuasively, ensuring a focus on technical excellence through the preparation and delivery of technical and non-technical documentation and communications.
Student outcomes are knowledge, skills, and behaviors that students should demonstrate by the time of graduation. The EMET program adopted the General Criteria set forth by ABET.
Graduates of the Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology program should demonstrate:
- An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline.
- An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline.
- An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature.
- An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes.
- An ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team.
