Engineering Technology- Electro-Mechanical Concentration

The Engineering Technology baccalaureate degree (Electro-Mechanical concentration) is a completion program for graduates of associate degree programs in electrical/electronics, mechanical, electro-mechanical or similar engineering technology programs. The objective of this program is to allow students who possess an associate degree in these areas to complete the bachelor degree in approximately the equivalent of two years of full-time work (64-70 semester hours). This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET (111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012, telephone (410) 347-7700,

Graduates are engineering technologists prepared to fill industrial positions in areas directly related to scientific programming, product design, process control, testing, manufacturing, sales, and service. Typical engineering technologist’s duties may include working in teams involved with product analysis/design, instrumentation and control, CAD/CAM product design, laboratory testing services, product sales and service, product application, and the design of systems that require a hardware/software interface.

Program Requirements: Engineering Technology
(Electro-Mechanical concentration)

(129-134 semester hours)

Between 65 and 70 hours of course work beyond the 64 hours earned for an associate’s degree are required to complete this program. Total hours for graduation depend on your selection of a Miami Plan Thematic Sequence, your mathematical preparation, and the prerequisite courses taken as part of your associate degree. Prerequisites, completed in the associate degree, are described below.
