General Engineering Tech. - Electromechanical Systems (BSET)

Advanced technical systems such as automated manufacturing and ship systems require a unique blend of technical knowledge to enable understanding and analysis of the interrelated electrical and mechanical components. 

This program is designed for students with military training in mechanical or electrical engineering technology. The Electromechanical Systems concentration is designed to support military and civilian career interests related to design, operation, and repair of these critical systems and their interfaces.

In this course of study, you also will complete a minor in Engineering Management, a four-course sequence that provides essential analytical skills for complex technical and business decision.


You may earn Technical Base credit from applicable military training. Technical Electives may be completed with military training or college courses. 

Talk with an advisor to determine how your credits will transfer. The curriculum sheets below can serve as a guide for planning your course of study.
