Engineering career preparation starts here! Electricity drives everything around us, and a certificate in Electro-Mechanical Technology provides positive momentum to begin a career in technology.
Why Choose Electro-mechanical Technology?
The Electro-Mechanical Technology Certificate program is designed to provide instruction and other learning activities that will enable students to acquire a combination of both basic and more advanced technical skills that can be applied in a relatively wide range of manufacturing and other industrial settings.
In addition to developing technical skill proficiency, the Electro-Mechanical curriculum also incorporates competency-based applied learning that contributes to higher-order reasoning and problem-solving skills, work attitudes, general employability skills, technical skills, and occupation-specific skills. The Electro-Mechanical Technology Certificate program is designed for students who plan to enter the workforce immediately upon graduation.
Gainful employment disclosure for program completers
Garrett College awards a Certificate in Electro-Mechanical Technology to successful graduates. An Associate of Science in Engineering (A.S.E.) in Electrical Engineering is also available.
Program Learning Outcomes
- Students will demonstrate an understanding of industrial safety and health, and environmental requirements.
- Students will demonstrate the ability to generate and interpret computer-aided drawings.
- Students will demonstrate the ability to understand, operate, troubleshoot, and maintain electrical and electronic, pneumatic, hydraulic, and electro-mechanical components and/or systems.
- Students will demonstrate the ability to analyze and interpret typical Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) ladder logic programs.
- Students will demonstrate the ability to operate and troubleshoot industrial automation systems.
- Students will demonstrate proficiency in the use of human machine interfaces to operate automated systems.
