Electrical Engineering Technology A.A.S.

A40180

The Electrical Engineering Technology curriculum prepares the students to apply basic engineering principles and technical skills in electrical maintenance and management or in the design, planning, construction, development, and installation of electrical systems, machines, and power generating equipment. Includes instruction in electrical circuitry, prototype development and testing, systems analysis and testing, systems maintenance, instrument calibration, and report preparation.

Graduates may seek employment as technicians, engineering assistants, technical managers, or salespersons in electrical generation/distribution, industrial maintenance, electronic repair, or other fields requiring a broad-based knowledge of electrical and electronic concepts. Students should consult their advisor for information about course scheduling.

Upon successful completion of this program, the student should be able to:

  • Use written and oral discussions to discover and articulate ideas.
  • Assess and retrieve information through print and electronic media, evaluating the accuracy and authenticity of that information, (GE III.4)
  • Demonstrate the use of basic test equipment to make measurements.
  • Demonstrate the ability to implement an automation design using PLC's.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of electrical control systems by being able to connect a DC motor in a reversing circuit.
