Electro-Mechanical Technology

Engineering career preparation starts here! Electricity drives everything around us, and a certificate in Electro-mechanical technology provides positive momentum to begin a career in technology.

Why Choose Electro-mechanical Technology?

The Electro-Mechanical Technology Certificate program is designed to provide instruction and other learning activities that will enable students to acquire a combination of both basic and more advanced technical skills that can be applied in a relatively wide range of manufacturing and other industrial settings.

In addition to developing technical skill proficiency, the Electro-Mechanical curriculum also incorporates competency-based applied learning that contributes to higher-order reasoning and problem-solving skills, work attitudes, general employability skills, technical skills, and occupation-specific skills. The Electro-Mechanical Technology Certificate program is designed for students who plan to enter the workforce immediately upon graduation.

Electrical Engineering Degrees and Certificates Awarded

Garrett College Engineering department awards Electro-mechanical Technology Certificate to graduates. An Associate of Science in Engineering (A.S.E.) in Electrical Engineering is also offered by the Engineering department.

Program Goals

Information Literacy Skills: To incorporate information literacy skills that will enable them to locate, evaluate, and effectively use information in the student’s program option.

Communication Skills: To communicate effectively, both orally and in writing; to demonstrate skills in technical writing.

Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills: To be able to analyze case studies and solve problems relating to engineering field with the help of technology tools; to function effectively and efficiently using critical thinking and analytical skills in problem solving either as an individual or as a team member; to distinguish critical from non-critical information in various situations.

Scientific Literacy and Quantitative Reasoning Skills: To use technology and computer applications to effectively collect data, analyze and display results.

Information Management Skills: To use software tools for research, communication and practical applications.

Academic and Technical Proficiency in the Major: Graduates of the Engineering program will be proficient in the knowledge, skills and abilities to transfer to four-year institutions to continue their studies of higher learning.

Program Benefits

The curriculum is built around a strong basic core of mathematics, the sciences including chemistry and physics, and computer technology. Students will gain knowledge of engineering theory through engineering courses and application of theory to real world problems. The program will provide students hands-on experience in the design, development, implementation, and management of projects and in the communication and presentation of their ideas and project plans. Graduates may choose to continue learning at a four-year institution or begin in their chosen career.
