CURRICULAR GUIDE

Electrical Technology
Associate in Applied Science Degree

Curriculum Code: 0134  (Effective Fall 2002 - Summer 2007)

Students in this program may select either the construction specialty or the
machine control and maintenance specialty.  Construction electricians install
electrical wiring and systems in homes, offices, stores or industrial plants. 
Machine control designers are responsible for designing control circuits which
operate machinery in plants.  Maintenance electricians work in industry
maintaining and troubleshooting power and control circuits on machinery.  Both
specialties require mechanical aptitude, logical thinking and problem-solving
skills.  Employment opportunities vary with each specialty.

Students should see Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course
prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section
for skills assessment and advising information.

General education is an important part of this program and includes a
mathematics competency requirement.  To fulfill the mathematics competency
requirement, students may need to complete specific course work in
mathematics.  See the General Education Core Requirements section for
information on how to fulfill these requirements.
