Electromechanical Systems Engineering Technology EMEST
The Electromechanical Systems Engineering Technology Program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. This degree provides is comprised of TWO emphasis areas. Student may choose to concentrate in one of the following areas: General Mechanical OR Manufacturing.
The Mechanical emphasis stresses the application and design of mechanical and thermal power systems utilizing strength of materials, metallurgy, statics, dynamics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer. Graduates may be involved in applied design, analysis, application, HVAC Design or production of mechanical/thermo-fluid systems.
The Manufacturing emphasis stresses technological competency and managerial skills in the economical utilization of raw material and resources through planning, selection, and organization of manufacturing processes. Graduates may be involved in mass production, tooling, selection of machines, and marketing of manufactured goods.

The program has close ties with the mechanical building industry. The student organization is the Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA). We also participate in the Associated General Contractors (AGC) mechanical division and have been ranked in the top three universities in the country in mechanical contracting. This includes HVAC, welding engineering, and estimating, scheduling and plumbing engineering. The ET program offers a number of scholarships through AEE, ASHRAE and MCAA, and students may apply for grants based on financial need and/or academic achievement.
