Bachelor of Science in electromechanical engineering technology

The electromechanical engineering technology program offers an opportunity in interdisciplinary education, resulting from the implementation of electronics and computers in engineering systems. This major offers an individual plan of study with coursework in electronics, electrical, manufacturing, and mechanical areas, with appropriate prerequisite courses. It prepares graduates to work in instrumentation, controls, technical sales, and other areas requiring interdisciplinary preparation.

Educational outreach

Wayne State students pursuing a Bachelor's of Science in Electromechanical Engineering Technology may have the option of taking classes at the Advanced Technology Center and at the Schoolcraft Center. Contact Danielle Dickow, Engineering Technology advisor, at for additional information.

Course sequence

Each program has a course sequence or a proper order in which to take classes. It is important that students take their classes following the course sequences provided by the department because foundational or prerequisite classes contain information that utilized in the upper level courses.

Since our students are coming from many different community colleges and technical backgrounds they transfer to Wayne State with varying amounts of credits. It is difficult to prescribe a semester-by-semester plan that would fit each individual student's situation, so instead priority lists are used.

Each list contains a group of classes that are required to be completed before registering for classes in the subsequent lists. This helps students progress through the program, while building on their foundational skills.

Priority level 1: Priority level 2: Priority level 3: Terminal courses:
MAT 1800 ET 3430* ET 3450* EET 4200(Available after level 3)
CSC 1050 OR ET 2160 PHY 2140+1 EET 3720 ET 4999 (Available last semester)
PHY 2130+1 ET3030 EET 3150 MCT 3010 (Available after level 2)
CHM 1020 ET 3850 EET 3500  
All Lower Division Tech (=30) ET 3870 or 5870  

* Feel free to take math before completing the prior level


  • Students who are found to be "out of order" can be administratively withdrawn from their classes. It is also very important that students get a C- or better in a class that is listed as a prerequisite to another class.
  • Maximum 64 semester credits can be transferred from Community Colleges.
  • Transfer credits are subject to WSU Transfer Student Statute and may be revised.
  • Minimum 30 credits must be earned from WSU including 24 credits from Div. of Engineering Technology
  • WSU General Education Requirement includes: (a) Foundational Competencies for BC, IC, OC, and  (b) Inquiries in QR, CI, CIV, SI, NSI, DEI, GL

All courses required are not on these priority lists. General education and communication courses are omitted from the above list. Students can use the general education and communication classes to help "fill in" or "balance" their schedules, but these are outside of the technical/program of study area. A student should first try to schedule classes on at the priority level they are at, and then opt to take general education classes.
