Automated processes and machines continue to shape our world in remarkable and complex ways. Their design, maintenance and function relies on skilled professionals. The Electromechanical Engineering Technician (Co-op) program will provide the skills to give your dreams the jolt they need.
You’ll learn the principles of robotics and as you progress through the program you'll be eligible to earn a FANUC Robotics Certification through our FANUC Robotics Certified Education Robot Training. You’ll also learn the principles of PLC automation, HMI development and pneumatic control circuits.
The range of skills needed for success in the modern economy are diverse, so you’ll also study project management, laws and ethics, reason and writing in preparation for an exciting and challenging career. The EMN program is a two-year, four-semester program of academic study and practical application. As a co-op program, students will get the chance to get hands on experience in their chosen field.
Students will also get to demonstrate their mastery of electromechanical principles and skills through a 15-week capstone project. Students will learn the principles of PLC automation, HMI development and pneumatic control circuits. The basics of mechanical prints, tolerances and the nuances behind designing and building modern electromechanical machinery are taught through AutoCad and SolidWorks. Additionally students will develop the necessary critical thinking skills to be capable of analyzing, modifying, maintaining and repairing electromechanical systems.
