Electromechanical Engineering, also known as mechatronic engineering, is a mixture of mechanical engineering and electrical engineering, and it also entails some computer programming and control engineering. Electromechanical engineering refers to the analysis, design, manufacture and maintenance of equipment and products based on the combination of electrical/electronic circuits and mechanical systems.
Electromechanical engineering is a hybrid field that blends aspects of both electrical and mechanical engineering. The result is a branch of engineering focused on designing and creating automated production lines, using electrical and mechanical principles. It provides understanding of both electrical-electronics and mechanical principles, and the design problems associated with combining electrical and mechanical components into electromechanical devices or systems. Devices which carry out electrical operations by using moving parts are known as electromechanical.
Electromechanical engineers bring the principles of electrical and mechanical engineering to the workplace. All kinds of products, from space satellites to computer monitors, are both electrical and mechanical in nature; electromechanical engineers conceptualize and build machines that use both technologies. Electromechanical engineering technicians work with automated equipment and machinery. They need an expertise with computer technology and mechanical processes, which they can obtain through an associate's degree program or certificate program.
