PURPOSE: The Electrical Engineering Technology degree prepares individuals for employment as commercial, industrial and residential electricians or electrician helpers.

By the completion of this program, students will be expected to demonstrate an intermediate level of competency in the following skills:

  1. Demonstrate knowledge and application of direct and alternating currents, resistance, magnetism, inductance and capacitance in industry practice.
  2. Install functioning, safe, and efficient electrical circuits.
  3. Successfully complete the journeyman-level exam.
  4. Install and repair functioning, safe, and efficient residential circuits.
  5. Apply the National Electrical Code along with State and local codes to the industrial wiring process.
  6. Communicate an understanding of the concepts of magnetism and generators used in electrical motor applications.
