School Selection Criteria
Students interested in electromechanical engineering programs may want to keep the following considerations in mind when choosing which schools to apply to:
- Prospective students should look for schools that are Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
- Students who are particularly interested in a particular aspect of the field may want to see if the school offers formal emphasis options in topics such as mechanical engineering or manufacturing.
- Cooperative education programs, also called co-ops, combine classroom instruction with paid employment, giving students real-world experience and contacts for future job opportunities.
- Prospective students may want to look for schools that have engineering-related student groups, which may bring speakers to campus or facilitate networking events.
Associate's Degree Programs
Associate's degree programs in electromechanical engineering technology introduce students to the fundamental principles of the field. Students take introductory engineering, electricity and mechanical systems courses, as well as basic computer classes in computer-aided drafting (CAD) and programming. In addition, students must take general education courses. After two years of full-timer studies, graduates are typically awarded an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree.
Bachelor's Degree Programs
Bachelor's degree programs in electro-mechanical engineering technology are relatively rare; only five schools offer accredited programs. In addition to basic math and science coursework, students learn about the procurement, installation, testing and maintenance of electromechanical systems. Upon graduation, students are prepared for careers in a wide range of industries. It is important to note that some schools only offer this degree as a degree completion program for students who already hold associate's degrees.
Undergraduate Certificate Programs
Undergraduate certificate courses in electromechanical engineering typically provide a short series of courses in electrical and mechanical engineering. There are also some schools that provide specialized certificates in particularly relevant aspects of the field, such as lasers. At some schools, credits can be applied to higher degrees in the future.
There are colleges and universities around the country that offer undergraduate programs in electromechanical engineering technology. Prospective students should look for accredited schools that provide professional preparation opportunities.
