Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology

 

Electromechanical engineering technology is designed to prepare students for combined knowledge of mechanical engineering technology with knowledge of electrical and electronic circuits to design, develop, test, and manufacture electronic and computer-controlled mechanical systems. Their work often overlaps that of both electrical and electronics engineering technologists and mechanical engineering technologists. The job involves design, develop, test, or supervise the manufacturing and installation of electrical-mechanical equipment, components, or systems for commercial, industrial, military, or scientific use. Students learn in the classroom and in hands-on laboratories. Using a mixture of actual components, systems and computer simulations, students become skilled in the practical application of industrial electronics, computers, hydraulics, programmable controllers, pneumatics, robotics and mechanical principles. There is going to be a huge demand of electro-mechanical engineers in the energy sector and green collar sector jobs including alternative energies as all the energy systems involve electro-mechanical operation. The BLS has the Average Starting Salary in 2007 as $54,710 and growth Projection for 2006-2016, as 5%.
