Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology


Bachelor of Science | College of Liberal Arts and Applied Science

What is Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology?

The Electro-Mechanical (EMET) program enables graduates of electrical, mechanical, electro-mechanical, and similar associate degree engineering technology programs to complete their bachelor's degree in Applied Science with a major in Engineering Technology, and an Electro-Mechanical concentration.

Courses for the EMET program are offered at Miami University's regional locations in Hamilton and Middletown and also via distance learning at 10 selected college partner locations in Ohio.

What are the features of Miami’s program?

The Department of Engineering Technology, traces its origin to about half a century ago. The courses that are offered in this department (only in Middletown and Hamilton Campuses) are more applied and less math-intensive compared to engineering degrees. Most of the engineering classes are held in the evenings, which provides this opportunity to our student to work full-time during the day. Most of our students are wither already employed, or participate in our co-op program. Close to 100% of our students have a job or have secured a job before they graduate.

What are the special admission requirements, if any?

There are no additional admission requirements for this program.

What courses would I take?

The curriculum focuses on electro-mechanical instrumentation and process control. This field incorporates elements of both electrical and mechanical engineering technology.

The electrical component of the curriculum includes course work in areas such as:

  • Computerized instrumentation
  • Data acquisition
  • Electrical control systems

The mechanical component consists of traditional engineering sciences including:

  • Fluid mechanics
  • Dynamics

What can I do with this major?

Graduates of the program are engineering technologists prepared to fill industrial positions in areas directly related to process control, electronic instrumentation, testing, manufacturing, sales, and service. Typical engineering technologist's duties may include analysis and design of process control equipment, laboratory testing services, product sales and service, applications engineering, and the development of systems that require a hardware/software interface.
