Electro-Mechanical Technology Program Description
The Electro-Mechanical Technology Certificate program at Garrett College is designed to provide instruction and other learning activities that will enable students to acquire a combination of both basic and more advanced technical skills that can be applied in a relatively wide range of manufacturing and other industrial settings.  In addition to developing technical skill proficiency, the Electro-Mechanical curriculum also incorporates competency-based applied learning that contributes to higher-order reasoning and problem-solving skills, work attitudes, general employability skills, technical skills, and occupation-specific skills.  The content includes, but is not limited to instruction in maintenance techniques, computer-aided drafting/design skills, technical communications, maintenance and operation of various industrial components, quality control and testing, material handling protocols, and proper usage of tools and instrumentation.
