Electromechanical Engineering Technology

Electromechanical Engineering Technology | CPP College of Engineering

The Electromechanical Engineering Technology Program offers two programs:

• Electronic Systems Engineering Technology

• Electromechanical Systems Engineering Technology

Our hands-on, high quality education process enables graduates to be productive members of the engineering team from the first day of employment.

Electromechanical Systems Engineering Technology

The program is designed to provide a career path as an electromechanical engineering technologist. It is a four-year baccalaureate program. The program emphasizes on applied design, operation or troubleshooting of electromechanical systems. It focuses on bridging mechanical and thermofluid systems with electronics and control systems. The program covers areas in mechanics, materials, fluid dynamics, HVAC, heat transfer, machine design, instrumentation and controls, robotics, computer programming, manufacturing systems. Some examples of career path are - Test and Evaluation Engineer, Systems Engineer, Mechanical Engineer, Field Service Engineer, HVAC Engineer, Maintenance Engineer, Process Engineer etc.

Electronic Systems Engineering Technology

The electronic systems engineering technology program provides graduates with a four-year baccalaureate degree that emphasizes the application of theory for systems that includes electronics, embedded software systems, communications, controls, instrumentation, and robotics related applications while also including the opportunities to explore concepts in advanced digital design using Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), RF and Optical Communication. The program provides students with a hands-on learning opportunity to develop projects in related topics while working in teams as they develop both the necessary technical and communication skills to be successful in industry. Some examples of industry careers include Electronics Engineer, Digital Engineer, Avionics Software Engineer, Systems Test Engineer, and Automation Robotics Engineer.
