Bachelor of Applied Science in Electromechanical Engineering Technology (EMET)

This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Program overview

The EMET program enables graduates of electrical, mechanical, electro-mechanical, and similar associate degree engineering technology programs to complete their bachelor's degree in Applied Science with a major in Engineering Technology, and an Electro-Mechanical concentration. 

Courses for the EMET program are offered at Miami University's regional locations in Hamilton and Middletown and also via distance learning at 10 selected college partner locations in Ohio.

What classes would I take?

The curriculum focuses on electro-mechanical instrumentation and process control. This field incorporates elements of both electrical and mechanical engineering technology.

The electrical component of the curriculum includes course work in areas such as

  • computerized instrumentation
  • data acquisition, and
  • electrical control systems.

The mechanical component consists of traditional engineering sciences including

  • fluid mechanics, and
  • dynamics.

See Miami University's General Bulletin for core program requirements for this degree.

Integration of the electrical and mechanical components takes place through courses that emphasize the development and control of automated industrial systems through the use of artificial intelligence, graphical user interface, and electro-mechanical systems design.

Upon successful completion of the program the student will be awarded the Bachelor of Science in Applied Science degree with a major in Engineering Technology.
