Electrical Engineering Curriculum
Students In This Major:
- Utilize their computer in all of the major courses to enhance employability upon graduation.
- Acquire hands-on experience with programmable controllers, motors, generators, power systems, industrial electronics, and other related areas.
- Study under experienced faculty members in small class settings.
- Are recommended to have a laptop computer during their senior year.
More than 90% of graduates go directly into positions like:
- Project Control Technician
- Electronic Maintenance Technician
- Production Technician
- Field Service Technician
- Systems Test Engineer
- Quality Assurance Technician
- Field Project Technician
- Power Technician
- Communications Technician
The demand for Electrical Engineering Technicians is immense. There are simply are not enough qualified technicians entering the market place, and a large number of working technicians are approaching retirement age.
