The primary goal of the Electrical Technology program is to educate students about the electrical trades through a comprehensive selection of courses ranging from theory to safety. At this level, students learn basic electrical theory, wiring methods and materials, national and local electrical codes, and print layout. Students acquire the experience to install receptacles, switches, lighting, and service entrance conductors. While working with the various circuits for residential, commercial, and industrial facilities, students learn to work safely around electricity and to use the proper tools for the respective wiring job. As students progress through the program, they will learn about motors, programmable logic controls, generators, and meters. By program’s end, students should be able to exhibit practical and mathematical knowledge to support, explain, and troubleshoot each application learned.
