Electrical Technology Programs

The electrical industry offers a wide array of career opportunities for the well-trained electrician or electrical technician. The Pittsburg State University Electrical Technology program provides students in-depth training for each of the three broad areas of the electrical industry, including:

  • Residential Electrical Wiring
  • Commercial Electrical Construction
  • Industrial Electrical Construction and Maintenance

Students will master wiring a residential single-family home; installation of large switchgear, conduits, wiring and data systems in a multi-million dollar commercial building; system installation, analysis, design, and troubleshooting of an industrial automated control system with Programmable Logic Controller’s, Variable Frequency Drives and robotics. Electrical program graduates are prepared for a wide range of employment opportunities. The Electrical Technology Program is a 2-year “hands-on” technical program with emphasis given to preparing graduates to become certified electricians by attaining Journeyman Electrical Certification.

The outlook for careers in the electrical field is very good and has been for a number of years. The current average electrician is in their late 50’s and has or will soon be retiring. The lack of skilled electrical workers to replace them has caused a severe shortage in the marketplace.
