Students can choose from two options in Electrical Technology:
Both the Certificate and AAS programs have a core of 65 credit hours (1744 clock hours) of "hands on" course work in electrical training, including nine credit hours of cooperative industrial training doing an on-the job electrical internship in the summer. The AAS has approximately 14 additional credit hours of general education (i.e., English, Speech, Computer Application, Business, Financial Accounting, etc.)
The two-year technical certificate is for those individuals who want the electrical training and certification without taking general education courses.
The Associate of Applied Science degree is for those individuals who seek electrical training and certification plus additional preparation for advancement into management, engineering, sales or other related areas.
