Electrical Engineering

The Electrical Engineering training program begins with a comprehensive overview of engineering math and maintenance. Students then receive more targeted training in electrical and mechanical principals and applications, such as circuits, microprocessors, and motors. Optional supplemental coursework in Power Plant Engineering is available for utility company or power station employees who need extra training.

Students must be high school graduates or have a GED certificate. When combined with on-the-job training, Electrical Engineering Technology provides the skill development and experience students need for professional success. They'll learn to:

  • Explain how voltage, current, and resistance are related by Ohm's Law and apply these principles to the design and function of electronic circuits.
  • Use electrical measuring instruments for troubleshooting.
  • Work with electronic measurement components such as multimeters, oscilloscopes, bridge-type instruments, and digital test equipment.
  • Explain the operation of electronic equipment and systems such as servo and control systems, numerical control systems, computers, programmable controllers, and microprocessors used in industry.
