Bachelor in Engineering in Electromechanical Engineering Technology

Campus Full time 4 years September 2017 USA Espanola

The Bachelor of Engineering in Electromechanical Engineering Technology (BEng. EMET) program is offered in response to a growing demand from industrial and consulting companies for engineering staff members with a wide range of technical knowledge. [+]

The Bachelor of Engineering in Electromechanical Engineering Technology (BEng. EMET) program is offered in response to a growing demand from industrial and consulting companies for engineering staff members with a wide range of technical knowledge. At Northern, this program will provide a clear pathway towards a bachelor degree for students completing Career and Technical Education associate degrees in Drafting, Electricity and Renewable Energy and Pre-engineering. The primary aim of the BEng. EMET program is to provide graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to apply current methods and technology to the development, design, operation, and management of electro-mechanical systems, particularly in those industries where automated systems are prevalent. The program will offer a concentration in Solar Energy and will provide the knowledge and skills for these two growing technical fields. The program objectives are the following: Graduates will be situated in growing careers involving design, development, and support of Electro-Mechanical Engineering Systems. Graduates will demonstrate involvement in significant technical roles and beginning leadership roles. Graduates will perform effectively both individually and in teams and demonstrate oral and written communication skills in the working environment. Graduates will continue personal and professional growth to remain globally competitive and develop a beginning understanding of business and ethical aspects of work. Graduates will demonstrate an ability to creatively use science and technology to solve problems. Completion of this program should result in the following student outcomes: An ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities; An ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies; An ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes; An ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives; An ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team; An ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems; An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature; An understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development; An understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity; A knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context; A commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement; Use computer-aided drafting or design tools to prepare graphical representations of electromechanical systems; Use circuit analysis, analog and digital electronics, basic instrumentation, and computers to aid in the characterization, analysis, and troubleshooting of electromechanical systems; Use statics, dynamics (or applied mechanics), strength of materials, engineering materials, engineering standards, and manufacturing processes to aid in the characterization, analysis, and troubleshooting of electromechanical systems; Use appropriate computer programming languages for operating electromechanical systems; Use electrical/electronic devices such as amplifiers, motors, relays, power systems, and computer and instrumentation systems for applied design, operation, or troubleshooting electromechanical systems;

Use advanced topics in engineering mechanics, engineering materials, and fluid mechanics for applied design, operation, or troubleshooting of electromechanical systems. Use basic knowledge of control systems for the applied design, operation, or troubleshooting of electromechanical systems; Use differential and integral calculus, as a minimum, to characterize the static and dynamic performance of electromechanical systems; and Use appropriate management techniques in the investigation, analysis, and design of electromechanical systems.
