This program combines foundational curriculum from the Mechanical Engineering Technology and Electrical Engineering Technology programs. Graduates from this program will gain a solid foundation in the principles of mechanics, mechanical systems, electrical concepts, and electronics through comprehensive curriculum and laboratory experiences.
The demand for technicians and engineering technologists remains high, with two of the main areas of interest in mechanical and electrical. While positions have historically been described as either mechanical or electrical, today many companies are looking for mechanical engineering technologists with some electrical background or electrical with some mechanical aptitude. Companies are looking for individuals with both mechanical and electrical skills.
This has also been recognized by universities, who now offer Bachelor of Science degrees in electro-mechanical engineering technology. Graduates of this program will have the foundational coursework leading into four year mechanical and/or electrical engineering technology programs at various universities, including a direct transfer into the Miami University degree completion program, as well as being qualified for entry-level engineering technicians in product design, engineering support, and other technical support positions.
