Prepare for an exciting career solving problems and designing solutions with the Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology associate degree program at New England Institute of Technology. Learn about product development, computer-aided design, and drafting (CAD), machining and welding as you train for technician and machinist positions in a variety of industrial settings.
Associate in Science Degree
Students at the associate in science level of the Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology program concentrate on general engineering principles and apply technical skills in support of automated electro-mechanical systems. They study new ways to manufacture existing products by learning design principles, problem solving, and how both the engineering materials and machining processes effect overall quality of manufacturing. Design is emphasized utilizing the latest in computer aided design and drafting technology (CADD), and computer aided manufacturing software (CAM). Students gain and apply a wide background of knowledge in such areas as electricity and electronics, metrology and the precision measurements of products, manufacturing processes, and Computer Numerical Machining (CNC).
Every item that we buy today has been the result of a product design development process. Today’s product designer works as a member of a product design and development team. Cross-functional product design that include both mechanical and electrical systems are responsible for bringing a product from initial conception to product launch when it becomes available to the public. They also work to continually improve products after product launch using both electrical and mechanical approaches.
Graduates could work in an environment that requires extensive technical diversity and electro-mechanical problem-solving skills. The design and manufacture of new products using high-tech automated manufacturing processes can be an extremely exciting and rewarding career. Graduates of the Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology program are prepared for several types of design and technologist positions on these teams, including positions such as design engineer, electro-mechanical technician, industrial engineering technician, quality control engineering technician, and research and development .
