SUMMARY

Choosing to study Electromechanical Instrumentation and Maintenance Technologies is a valuable choice and generally a necessary first step for undergrads choosing to enter a career as an instrumentation & control engineer, an electro-mechanical engineer, or an instrumentation engineer. Interestingly, electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies is a ​unique degree coming in at the 274th most popular degree. In the last year, there were 530 electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies graduates. In-state tuition for electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies at private schools is, on average, 4.5 times more expensive than their public fellows.

With only 47 schools having programs for electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies there could be a more finite list of the institutions which will have a degree program for you. If you're looking to immerse yourself with other electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies undergrads, consider looking at schools in Virginia which have the most undergrads admitted to electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies annually. Zooming out, the best region to study electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies is in the Mid East region with Rochester Institute of Technology, Pennsylvania State University-Penn State Altoona, and Pennsylvania State University-Penn State Berks best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection for the top conference to major in electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies is the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference with Pennsylvania State University-Penn State Altoona representing the conference. From our comprehensive list of the best colleges, our choice for the best university for electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies is Rochester Institute of Technology.

The best school might not actually be the best school for every student. There might be lots more perspectives to consider when choosing college. Features such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food might definitely affect your inclinations on which college to attend. Here at authority.org, we evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, as an example, you are interested in which electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies college has the best campus, the winner is Rochester Institute of Technology. If, for example, you are mostly interested in which university is home to the best campus, then we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, student reviews, government databases, and more so we can compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can explore our comprehensive list for the schools with the best student life and, from that list, our selection for the college with the best student life for electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies is Rochester Institute of Technology. Are you curious why? Keep scrolling to learn more about our top recommendations. Many of our picks might surprise you.

If price is a primary influence in your decisions, you might consider avoiding Rochester Institute of Technology. Rochester Institute of Technology appears to be the most expensive university for electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies, at least for out of state enrollment. That being said, we have a page for the most expensive colleges that could put the expense at Rochester Institute of Technology into perspective. Additionally, you could want to know that electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies is the 341st most expensive major in America, with an average associated cost of $20,000. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies in the country is Connecticut with costs at the primary two institutions Central Connecticut State University and University of Hartford of $17,726 and $39,220 respectively. Even more broadly, the most costly region of the country for electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Central Connecticut State University with a cost of $17,726, University of Hartford with a cost of $39,220, and Vermont Technical College with a cost of $27,336.

Our cheapest region for electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies is the Far West region which is represented by Bakersfield College with a cost of $7,700 and Solano Community College with a cost of $6,528. On the bright side, the most affordable school for electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies is Solano Community College. Authority.org's full list of the most affordable schools can be explored here.

In-state students can expect to pay around $9,800 for a degree in electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies. The cost balloons intensely to an average of $19,800 for the out-of-state public-school student. As such, you might be interested in our pick for the college representing the best value for electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies: Rochester Institute of Technology. On this page you will find our comprehensive list about the universities we believe to be the best value overall. Do know, this idea is predicated on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition is considered, but as we do not know what state(s) you might qualify for in-state tuition, we are approaching this discussion through out-of-state tuition costs.

Earnings for electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies majors differ a lot, but within two-years of leaving college graduates will typically make around $60,300. While there is much variation in earnings potential; top earners can bring in up to $92,300. Even right out of university, the minimum earning positions within the electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies field make $38,900, which could be worse. The top earning grads for electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies come from Rochester Institute of Technology and if you want to find the colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The all-around diversity of electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies is decent, ranking in the 66th percentile of all majors. The college with the highest composite diversity for electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies is DeVry University-Illinois and here you can find our general list of the schools which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Electromechanical Instrumentation and Maintenance Technologies major sits only within the 59th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is actually greater, ranking in the 80th percentile. White undergraduates make up the largest proportion at 52% of students majoring in electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies. Additionally, 85% of undergraduates seeking an electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies major are men.

The median ranking of electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies professors is 4.1 stars, a ranking which is 2% greater than the average for all majors; which is a good score. If you are curious about the most popular electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies instructor nationally, consider looking up Nathan Whalen from University of Oregon. It might be shocking, but the best ranked electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies professors from student rankings are at University of Oregon. As we consider information beyond simply rankings we find that the school possessing the best professors for electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies is Rochester Institute of Technology. You will find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with many of the top examples of instructors nationwide.

Finally, the hardest university to get into for electromechanical instrumentation and maintenance technologies is Purdue University Northwest. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we do have a general list for the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we do hope you understand that considering university with a perspective only shaped by superlatives might create problems. We hope you explore our other pages on different universities and peruse a few of our helpful background pages on essential things to look for as your university search continues.
