The Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology (B.S. EMET) degree program provides the basic undergraduate education required for a career as an electro-mechanical engineering technologist. The program emphasizes a breadth of knowledge in all fields of engineering technology related to typical, highly-automated manufacturing, production, or assembly plant processes. Basic coverage is provided in all major areas to 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.

The primary aim of the EMET program is to provide graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to apply current methods and technology to the development, design, operation, and management of electro-mechanical systems, particularly in those industries where automated systems are prevalent. Specific educational objectives of the program are to:

  • Provide graduates with a broad knowledge of the electrical, electronic, and mechanical devices, and the instrumentation, machine technology, computer applications, and control equipment applicable to electro-mechanical systems.
  • Prepare graduates who can apply technical knowledge to the development, operation, control, troubleshooting, maintenance, and management of electromechanical systems.
  • Prepare graduates who can communicate effectively and work collaboratively in multi-disciplinary teams.
  • Prepare graduates who are productive professionals in technical careers and who continue to adapt to changes in the technical fields.

The major is organized as a four-year baccalaureate program with the corresponding Penn State admission requirements. Graduates of an associate degree in either electrical or mechanical engineering technology from Penn State may re-enroll in the EMET program. The College of Engineering ENGR students may enroll through "Change of Major" procedures. Students from an engineering technology program at another institution or community college accredited by TAC of ABET may transfer into the program with advanced standing.

For the B.S. degree in Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology, a minimum of 130 credits is required. This program is accredited at Altoona College, Berks College, and Penn State New Kensington of the University College by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone: 410-347-7700, or www.abet.org.
