Is the symmetry breaking,which causes the electromagnetic and weak forces emerge from electroweak force,the same thing as you mentioned kurros?

Thanks to both
No it is a seperate thing, although somewhat similar in that there is a symmetry of the fundamental theory which needs to be broken. The electroweak unification scale is around the terascale, i.e. 10^3 GeV, whereas the scale at which SUSY breaking is often theorised to occur is at something more like the grand unification scale, way up at 10^19 GeV or so usually.
