Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology (EMET)

EMET 440 Electro-Mechanical Project Design (3) Planning, development, and implementation of electro-mechanical design project; includes formal report writing, project documentation, group presentations, project demonstrations.

EMET 440 Electro-Mechanical Project Design (3)

Electro-Mechanical Project Design is to provide students with theoretical and practical experience associated with the integration of the various disciplines within the field of electromechanical engineering technology.  Students working in teams will employ previously developed and approved design plans to construct, demonstrate, and document an integrated, electromechanical system.  Plans for designs will come from the results of the project design preparation course, EMET 403, conducted in the immediately preceding semester.  Thus students in EMET 440 are expected to have participated in the design development process that occurred in that same offering of EMET 403 Projects will be required to use a variety of electromechanical equipment, including such items as robots, machine vision systems, programmable logic controllers, personal computers, electric motors, CNC equipment, etc.  Appropriate project documentation exercises, project presentations, progress reporting, budgeting and scheduling, system performance to specifications, and development of final design reports will be required elements of the course.
