The Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology department offers two Bachelor of Science degrees: Bachelor of Science in Electronic Systems Engineering Technology and Bachelor of Science in Electromechanical Systems Engineering Technology. Electromechanical Engineering Technology Programs are accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET. http://www.abet.org.
In each degree program, emphasis is placed on the application of engineering principles in solving real world problems. Extensive laboratory work with industry-based problems and software constitutes unique features of each program. Engineering technologists serve as members of the engineering team and engage in the management, design, production, assembly, quality control and sales activities in their respective fields.
Electromechanical Engineering Technology majors are applications-oriented and built upon a background of applied mathematics, including the concepts and applications of calculus. Utilizing applied science and technology, engineering technologists are members of an engineering team utilizing applied design techniques to produce practical, workable and safe results quickly and economically; configure hardware from proven concepts; redesign, build, install, operate, or manage complex technical systems, and/or provide customer engineering support.
High school graduates and community college transfer students with an aptitude in algebra, trigonometry, and the physical sciences, along with an interest in applications of new technology, are encouraged to apply to the Electromechanical engineering technology programs. Students desiring to major in Electromechanical Engineering Technology should have a capacity for science and mathematics, and incoming freshmen should have taken college preparatory courses in these disciplines in high school. Typical incoming transfer students should have completed college algebra and trigonometry and two quarters of college physics (with laboratory) prior to beginning the program at Cal Poly Pomona. All students should contact a program advisor to obtain assistance in developing their educational goals prior to actually starting their coursework. A minimum of 124 semester units is required to complete the degree.
The department’s programs are oriented to help students achieve competency in applying current methods and design procedures developed by engineers to solve practical technical problems commonly found in industry. Included in each program is instruction in applied sciences, computer-aided design (CAD), computer programming, oral and written communications, design and manufacturing processes, and the impact of technology within a broader societal context.
The faculty of the department is committed to helping students develop a strong sense of professionalism, high ethical standards and the pride that comes from accomplishment through technical competence. The department is also committed to helping students develop sound work habits such as timeliness, effective oral and written communication skills, academic excellence and professional integrity.
The Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology Department currently offers two degrees, and an incoming student will select from the following choices:
Electronic Systems Engineering Technology
The Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology Department offers an Electronic Systems Engineering Technology Program leading to a Bachelor of Science degree.
The Electronic Systems Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org, under the General Criteria, and the Program Criteria for Electrical/Electronic(s) Engineering Technology and Similarly Named Programs.
In today’s complex world, electronics, computers, and communications permeate every facet of our lives, and will do even more so in the future. This growth can provide exciting, challenging, and rewarding career opportunities for forward-looking students in Electronic Systems Engineering Technology. This program is an integrated four-year curriculum designed to prepare graduates for entry into industry as electronic systems engineering technologists.
The lower division mathematics, science, and electrical and electronics coursework is designed to provide a strong foundation for the upper-division program. The upper-division coursework emphasizes analog and digital electronics, computer hardware and software, networks, communications and control electronics. The program stresses the use of established electronic engineering analysis and design principles and applications for the solution of day-to-day technical problems currently found in industry. Graduates become members of the engineering team involved in the realization of technical projects. Typical roles are in Systems Engineering positions with an emphasis in product verification (test) and validation (application). http://www.cpp.edu/~engineering/ET/index.shtml.
Electromechanical Systems Engineering Technology
The Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology Department offers an Electromechanical Systems Engineering Technology Program leading to a Bachelor of Science degree.
The Electromechanical Systems Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org, under the General Criteria, and the Program Criteria for Electromechanical Engineering Technology and Similarly Named Programs.
The Electromechanical Systems Engineering Technology major stresses the application, design and integration of mechanical/thermo-fluid systems with electronics and control systems. The program emphasizes on principles of statics, dynamics, strength of materials, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, HVAC, machine elements, manufacturing systems and processes, engineering graphics, computer programming, robotics, instrumentation and controls. Graduates may be involved in applied design, analysis, application, or production of mechanical/thermo-fluid or robotics or control systems.
Note: A 2.0 GPA is required in core courses to receive a degree in all Electromechanical Engineering Technology majors.
