Electrical Engineering Technology - A.A.S.

Electrical engineering technicians help design, develop, test, and manufacture electrical and electronic equipment.  They may work in product evaluation and testing, using measuring and diagnostic devices to adjust, test, and repair equipment. Electrical and electronic engineering technology is also applied to a wide variety of systems such as communications and process controls.

Our students get hands-on experience with programmable controllers, motors, generators, power systems, and computer interfaces. During the senior year, they integrate laptop computers into all of their major courses to enhance their employability upon graduation.

The curriculum is designed to allow students the ability to investigate the theories of electricity with practical experience in electrical, electronic, and computer automated control systems.

This respected and demanding field prepares students for a diverse array of employment opportunities or continuing education after completion.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) student branch at SUNY Canton are involved in educational and professional activities such as regional conferences and field trips to industry and Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
