Our Electromechanical Engineering (ELM) Technology degree will provide you with a broad understanding of the design, development, manufacturing, and technical support of emerging electromechanical products, integrating, and improving both the product and the process. Our Electromechanical Engineering Technology program integrates mechanical, electrical and software technologies to design and manufacture products that are robust, socially responsible, and cost-effective. The ELM program emphasizes automation and control systems. In larger firms, the electromechanical engineer may be a member of the design or manufacturing team, while in smaller companies, this role may be assigned to a single individual. Career opportunities include positions in electrical/electronic/mechanical systems, industrial automation, or system implementation, technical representative, and field service representative.
In the Vermont State University’s ELM degree 2+2 program, you can earn an associate in either electrical or mechanical engineering Technology during the first 2 years and an Electromechanical bachelor’s degree in an additional 2 years. After 4 years our graduates develop a significant understanding of both areas of engineering and have a keen ability to merge technologies and automate them using software.

Unique Career Flexibility: Give yourself options. In our 2+2 program, you’ll choose to earn your associate degree in either Electrical Engineering Technology or Mechanical Engineering Technology with your third- and fourth-year courses bringing the two disciplines together for training that prepares you for a wide variety of electromechanical engineering technology jobs in different areas of focus.
Foundation for Graduate Studies: Gain a solid foundation for further studies in our rigorous, ABET-accredited program. Many of Vermont State’s Electromechanical Engineering Technology students continue on to earn a master’s degree in a related field.
Connections for Success: Get the inside track for career opportunities. Vermont State has established an electromechanical engineering technology advisory council, led by employers eager to hire our graduates.
What You’ll Learn
Vermont State’s Electromechanical Engineering Technology degree program takes a unique, interdisciplinary approach to bridge the traditional gap between engineering disciplines. It prepares you to bring skills and knowledge from both mechanical and electrical engineering to bear in solving challenges in the modern design and manufacturing context.
During your third and fourth years, you’ll take advanced courses in both disciplines while continuing to build your skills in math and areas like mechanical drawing and computer modeling. A concentration will give you extra exposure to the area opposite to that of your associate degree. (For example, if your associate degree was in mechanical engineering technology, your concentration will be in electrical.)
You’ll also complete a robust, team-based final design project that will give you the chance to bring everything you are learning together to tackle a real design challenge.
As an electromechanical engineering technology student at Vermont State, your fourth-year team design project will give you the chance to unleash your creativity and test your abilities on a real-world challenge of your choosing.
Recent student teams have created a device to gather data from a surfboard and developed a robot-controlled foosball table.
As you earn your electromechanical engineering technology degree, you’ll get lots of hands-on experience with the technologies used in the analysis, design, and manufacturing of electrical and mechanical components in our electrical and mechanical labs.
Equipment available includes oscilloscopes, function generators, soldering stations, power supplies, 3D printers, PC board fabrication, machining tools, testing equipment, and computer workstations.
This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.
