What does an Electromechanical Engineering Technologist do?

Assist electromechanical engineers in such activities as computer-based process control, instrumentation, or machine design. May prepare layouts of machinery or equipment, plan the flow of work, conduct statistical studies, or analyze production costs.

Jobs Roles

  • Modify, maintain, or repair electrical, electronic, or mechanical components, equipment, or systems to ensure proper functioning.
  • Specify, coordinate, or conduct quality-control or quality-assurance programs and procedures.
  • Establish and maintain inventory, records, or documentation systems.
  • Fabricate or assemble mechanical, electrical, or electronic components or assemblies.
  • Select electromechanical equipment, materials, components, or systems to meet functional specifications.
  • Select and use laboratory, operational, or diagnostic techniques or test equipment to assess electromechanical circuits, equipment, processes, systems, or subsystems.
  • Produce electrical, electronic, or mechanical drawings or other related documents or graphics necessary for electromechanical design, using computer-aided design (CAD) software.
  • Install or program computer hardware or machine or instrumentation software in microprocessor-based systems.
  • Consult with machinists or technicians to ensure that electromechanical equipment or systems meet design specifications.
  • Translate electromechanical drawings into design specifications, applying principles of engineering, thermal or fluid sciences, mathematics, or statistics.
  • Collaborate with engineers to implement electromechanical designs in industrial or other settings.
  • Analyze engineering designs of logic or digital circuitry, motor controls, instrumentation, or data acquisition for implementation into new or existing automated, servomechanical, or other electromechanical systems.
  • Conduct statistical studies to analyze or compare production costs for sustainable and nonsustainable designs.
  • Determine whether selected electromechanical components comply with environmental standards and regulations.
  • Develop or implement programs related to the environmental impact of engineering activities.
  • Identify energy-conserving production or fabrication methods, such as by bending metal rather than cutting and welding or casting metal.
  • Test and analyze thermodynamic systems for renewable energy applications, such as solar or wind, to maximize energy production.
