Electromechanical Engineering Technology


Electromechanical engineering technology programs prepare people to help engineers design automated systems.

Electromechanical engineering technology programs teach people to design automated systems and help engineers. Students learn to use computers, math, and science to design systems. They also learn to install and test robotics equipment.

Electromechanical engineering technology programs include topics such as:


In electromechanical engineering technology programs, students may be able to specialize in automation engineering technology.


Many community colleges and technical schools offer certificate and associate degree programs in electromechanical engineering technology. A certificate program usually takes a year of full-time study. An associate degree program at a community college usually takes two years of full-time study to complete.

The two-year program typically ends with a cooperative work experience. That means students are employed part time or for a short time at an actual work place.

A few colleges and universities offer bachelor’s degrees in electromechanical engineering technology. A bachelor's degree usually takes about four years of full-time study. The four-year program often ends with a senior technical project.
