Electronics/Electromechanical Engineering Technology


Program Description


The Engineering Technology program provides a pathway to employment as well as continuation at a bachelor level in Engineering Technology. The program allows the student to choose from two concentrations in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Technology.

Career Paths:

A graduate of this program has the option of entering the job market as an entry level member of the technical or engineering staff. The specific job title is determined by the specific technology track taken.

Electronics/Electromechanical Engineering Technology graduates have the option of working as a field service technician with firms in the communication, computer, electrical, medical, or transportation industries.

Mechanical Engineering Technology graduates have the option of working in areas of Computer-Aided Design, Machinery and Tool Design, Computer Integrated Manufacturing, Facilities Design, Electronic Packaging, CAD/CAM, and Materials Testing.

Upon successful completion of all program requirements, graduates will be able to:

  • Demonstrate theoretical and practical competency in engineering technology, including the basic principles of fluid mechanics, statics, and strength of materials;
  • Perform laboratory procedures and assess the validity of experimental/diagnostic data;
  • Develop and execute implementation strategies for the installation and maintenance of systems and apply computer-aided drafting skills based on industry standards;
  • Employ critical thinking to solve technical problems, in general, and to apply engineering technology problem solving methods based on business and industry standards;
  • Express and interpret both technical and non-technical concepts orally, in writing, and in electronic formats;
  • Demonstrate information literacy through familiarity and the effective use of technical documents in the field of mechanical engineering technology.

After Union County College


Graduates have the option of entering a Bachelor of Science in Technology program or accepting positions as field service representatives or laboratory technicians with firms in the computer and electronic fields.
