The Electricity Technology program focuses on preparing students for entry level electrician positions in the electrical field.  This program provides experiences from simply wiring a residence to being able to program the controllers for a major manufacturing plant.  The student will also gain knowledge of electrical theory and current electrical codes in industry.

Our courses include:

ELT 110 Circuits I -Introduction to basic theory of DC and AC circuits, including circuit analysis techniques,introductory magnetism, and transformer principles.

EET 154 Electrical Construction I -Involves the study of materials and procedures used in construction wiring.

ELT 114 Circuits II -Complex alternating current and direct current circuits. Emphasis is on impedance, reactance, power and electrical energy, electrical measurement instruments, and circuit analysis.

EET 252 Electrical Construction II -Expands the knowledge and skills needed to work in commercial and industrial construction wiring.

BRX 120 Basic Blueprint Reading -This course presents basic applied math, lines, multitier drawings, symbols, various schematics and diagrams, dimensioning techniques, sectional views, auxiliary views, threads and fasteners, and sketching typical to all shop drawings. Safety will be emphasized as an integral part of the course.

EET 270 Electrical Motor Controls -This course addresses the diversity of control devices and applications used in industry today. Safety and electrical lockouts are also included.

Basic Troubleshooting -This course explores the science of troubleshooting and the importance of proper maintenance procedures; how to work well with others, aids in communication, and trade responsibilities;examines actual troubleshooting techniques, aids in troubleshooting, and how to use schematics and symbols; focuses on specific maintenance tasks such as solving mechanical and electrical problems, breakdown maintenance, and the how’s and whys of planned maintenance.

EET 299 Co-Op -Co-op I (Electrical) provides supervised on-the-job work experience related to the student’s educational objectives. Students participating in the Cooperative Education program receive compensation for their work.
