Electro-Mechanical Technician Certificate
Division: Technology and Engineering
PROGRAM CODE: 2C41399
The Electro-Mechanical Technician Certificate is designed to provide fundamental, hands-on training on industrial systems and equipment. Students will study the basic principles, applications, concepts and functions of electro-mechanical processes associated with new or modify electrical or mechanical parts for products, such as industrial machinery or equipment from various industries such as petroleum, aerospace, aircraft, medical, bio-medical, autonomous systems, robotics, ocean exploration, or waste reclamation and removal. Typical duties of an electro-mechanical technician may include operation, testing, maintaining, or calibrating tools, equipment, automated systems, servo-mechanical, or electro-mechanical equipment. This certificate requires a total of 32-34 units. A minimum grade of C is required in each course taken. At least one half of the units toward the certificate must be completed at Fullerton College.
