Electro-Mechanical Technology

Program Length

Two Semester
Four Semester

Degree(s) Offered

Career Certificate 
Technical Certificate
Associate in Applied Science

The Electro-Mechanical Technology program is designed to prepare graduates for a career in the installation, maintenance, testing, and repair of industrial automation  equipment and systems. Students in this program receive instruction in a wide range of areas including safety, electrical/electronic theory and troubleshooting, electrical motor theory, Industrial controls, CAD, fluid power, PLC programming, industrial machine maintenance and troubleshooting.

Graduates will possess the skills necessary to enter the workforce as technicians in the fields of industrial electronic and electrical servicing, PLC and process control, industrial automation and as general electronic technicians. With a sizable percentage of skilled workers starting to retire, the call for new technicians will continue for many years. Newly hired technicians can expect a salary between $25,000 and $95,000 with the highest salaries coming for off-shore  electronics technicians.
