Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology (EMET)

EMET 403 Electromechanical Design Project Preparation (1) This course involves the planning and preliminary design activities for the capstone electro-mechanical design project.

EMET 403 Electromechanical Design Project Preparation (1)

EMET 403, Electromechanical Design Project Preparation, involves the planning and development of a design plan for a project to be completed in the capstone electro-mechanical project design course, EMET 440, which is required for all Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology baccalaureate degree students.  Both EMET 403 and EMET 440 require formal report writing, project documentation, and group presentations.  In EMET 403, students will present design plans to a faculty panel for review and approval.  In this planning and design development process, students will be required to follow a rigorous design methodology.  To support the process, EMET 403 will include instruction in the use of project management software, and students will undergo the typical process of periodic design reviews and critiques as their plans evolve.  Finally, EMET 403 is a team-based course.  All project designs will be prepared by teams of two or more students.  Generally, these same teams will be maintained through actual completion of the project in the following project design course, EMET 440.  Because of this linkage of EMET 403 and EMET 440, both in design plans and team structure, it is essential that students schedule EMET 403 in the semester immediately prior to the semester in which they will register for EMET 440.
