Electro-Mechanical & IT Service Technician 2013-2014

These are 2013-2014 plans of study.

<--- Back to 2014-2015 plans of study

 

The Electro-Mechanical program is a marriage of Columbus State’s Mechanical Engineering Technology and Electronics Engineering Technology programs. The skills electro-mechanical technicians possess are used in virtually every industry–from manufacturing, to environmental control, to food and pharmaceutical production, to power plants. Electro-mechanical technicians are able to contribute immediately to the companies that hire them.

Electro-mechanical technicians are in great demand. Any industry that uses electrical components and/or has any level of automation and process control needs and will always need EMEC technicians. Electro-mechanical engineering technicians perform both preventive and corrective maintenance on electro-mechanical systems as well as assist in the design of such systems. The most rewarding part of this field is the variety and creativity it affords. EMEC technicians use their knowledge and skills to solve problems and to come up with creative solutions daily.

Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology also shares related courses with the Electronic Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology, and Quality Assurance Technology. For additional information refer to those sections of the College Catalog.

Upon completion of the Associate Degree in Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology, the graduate will be able to:

•   Read and interpret engineering drawings

  • Select an appropriate electric motor and control based on known functional requirements
  • Identify and troubleshoot components in hydraulic and pneumatic systems
  • Troubleshoot electric motors
  • Identify and select electro-mechanical components for typical industrial requirements
  • Select and use appropriate power control devices, timers, and sensors
  • Identify closed-loop and open-loop systems and select the type of control required to achieve a given system response
  • Demonstrate skill in applying programmable logic controllers to control simple processes
  • Perform preventive and corrective maintenance on electro- mechanical systems.
