Electromechanical Technology(4½ Semesters)
Program Coordinator and Instructor: Green
Instructors: Buffaloe, Fitzen, Hudman, Larson, Shepherd, Womack
One Advanced Technical Certificate, one Associate of Applied Science degree, and one Bachelor of Applied Technology degree are available.
All theory classes and laboratory application classes of these theories require concurrent enrollment.
Selection of the Electronics option for each accepted student in the Electronic Core curriculum will occur in the second semester. Acceptance into particular options is based upon available openings and other factors such as a grade point average and attendance.

Successful completion of a course is required before the student can progress in the program. If the student fails any math, theory, or lab course, then that course must be repeated and a passing grade obtained before the student can advance in the program. The student must exit the program and make up their deficiency through Technical General Education or other appropriate methods. The student will then be allowed to repeat the course at the next available program opening.
Once a student successfully completes Electronics (ELTR) 141, Applied Mathematics I, and ELTR 142, Applied Mathematics II, the student may enroll directly into an academic math course which requires Math 147 as a prerequisite. Students will receive five credits that apply towards the 128 credits required for a bachelor's degree.
CoursesOfficial articulation agreements have been established with other Idaho post-secondary and secondary schools. Where these agreements exist, the specific block of training (i.e., session/semester/year) will be accepted as equivalent to that at ISU and will count equally toward graduation.
Based on your keyboarding skills, you may be required to take a 1 credit Keyboarding class in order to meet the competencies of the program.
