Electrical Technology

The post secondary Electrical Technology program prepares individuals to install, operate, maintain, and repair electrically-energized systems such as residential, commercial, and industrial electric wiring, and DC and AC motors, controls, and electrical distribution panels. Instruction in the use of test equipment is included.

The Electrical Technology instructional emphasis is on theory, circuits, testing, schematic/blueprint drawing and reading, digital principles design basics, motor and control devices, and wire installation with construction and industrial equipment. Students are awarded Associate in Science degrees upon success-fully completing program.

Program Components

  • Application of electricity and electronics to include electronic circuits and schematic reading.
  • Residential and commercial wiring, control systems, and electrical estimation.
  • Industrial control systems, control devices, and AC/DC motors and machinery
  • Programmable logic controllers and systems programming
  • Fluid power laboratory applications

Employment Outlook

Employment of Electrical Technicians is expected to increase as fast as the average for all occupations through the decades. As the population and the economy grow, more electrical/electronics technicians will be needed to install and maintain electrical/electronics devices and wiring in houses, offices, factories, and other structures.
