The Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology (B.S. EMET) degree program at Pennsylvania State University provides the basic undergraduate education required for a career as an electro-mechanical engineering technologist.


The Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology program offered at Pennsylvania State University emphasizes a breadth of knowledge in all fields of engineering technology related to typical, highly-automated manufacturing, production, or assembly plant processes. 

Basic coverage is provided in all major areas to technology involved in the operation and control of manufacturing and production processes, including instrumentation and monitoring methods, principles of machine design, automated control techniques, thermal and fluid sciences, computerized manufacturing systems, principles of electrical and electronic circuit operation, computer-aided drafting and design, economics of production, and statistical analysis and quality control.

The primary aim of the 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.


EMET graduates may pursue engineering work that entails design, prototyping, testing, operation, or maintenance of equipment. Others may work in the areas of research and development, quality control, inspection of procedures and processes, manufacturing, or sales and service. 

These careers could be in a variety of industries including aerospace, agriculture, automotive, communications, computers, construction, energy, pharmaceuticals, plastics, or robotics to name a few.
