Electrical Technology provides the opportunity to acquire the
theory and skills needed to gain entry-level employment and
advancement at an accelerated pace in the electrical field. Students
will be able to apply basic electrical theory to all aspects of
electrical technology. Skills and safe working habits are developed
through construction and maintenance work project assignments.
Since electricity has become an integral part of everyday life,
an adequate supply of electrical power is necessary, as well as a
reliable system for efficient utilization; thus, there is a continuing
need for qualified electrical technicians.
Graduates' knowledge and skills are useful in such career areas
as electrical engineering technicians, power plant technicians,
electrical construction, industrial maintenance, and as technical
representatives. High school prerequisites for this program are
Algebra I & II, and a GPA of at least 2.5.
A graduate of this program will be able to do the following:
* Demonstrate technical skills in a variety of electrical fields,
apply these skills to new developments in these fields, and
apply accepted safety standards.
* Demonstrate the ability to design, develop, and analyze
electrical circuits and systems.
* Complete parts lists and order forms that demonstrate
knowledge of catalogs and of coding and numbering systems
for devices, hardware, and materials.
* Interpret and develop blueprints, schematic diagrams, and
wiring plans and transform them into functioning projects
that conform to the National Electrical Code and/or other
* Evaluate electrical circuits and systems and communicate the
results of such evaluations verbally or in writing.
* Demonstrate basic knowledge of construction procedures
and electrical wiring techniques.
* Demonstrate knowledge of the use of test equipment and
the electrical theory used in troubleshooting, repair, and
operation of circuits, systems, and equipment.
* Demonstrate knowledge of the theory and mechanics of
rotating machinery, programmable controllers, transformers,
* Demonstrate leadership skills.
