Bachelor of Engineering in Electromechanical Engineering Technology
The Bachelor of Engineering in Electromechanical Engineering Technology (BEng. EMET) program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET, www.abet.org. Accreditation is proof that the quality of an academic program meets the standards of the profession.
We offer this progam in response to a growing demand from industrial and consulting companies for engineering staff with a wide range of technical knowledge. At Northern, this program will provide a clear pathway towards a bachelor degree for students completing Career and Technical Education associate degrees in Drafting, Electricity and Renewable Energy and Pre-engineering.
The primary aim of the BEng. EMET program is to provide graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to apply current methods and technology to the development, design, operation, and management of electro-mechanical systems, particularly in those industries where automated systems are prevalent. The program will offer a concentration in Solar Energy and will provide the knowledge and skills for these two growing technical fields.
The program objectives are the following:
- Graduates will be situated in growing careers involving design, development, and support of Electro-Mechanical Engineering Systems.
- Graduates will demonstrate involvement in significant technical roles and beginning leadership roles.
- Graduates will perform effectively both individually and in teams and demonstrate oral and written communication skills in the working environment.
- Graduates will continue personal and professional growth to remain globally competitive and develop a beginning understanding of business and ethical aspects of work.
- Graduates will demonstrate an ability to creatively use science and technology to solve problems.
Completion of this program should result in the following student learning outcomes (ABET ETAC Criteria 2019-2020 Accreditation Cycle):
- An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
- An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes;
- An ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
