Start your career in electrical technology

The A.A.S. degree in Electrical Technology is an excellent place to begin your career as an electrical technician.  

What You'll Learn

You'll learn to construct, test, analyze, trouble-shoot, and repair systems using real-world engineering tools and technology. You’ll also learn about fundamental concepts like electronics, industrial control, instrumentation, communications, power systems, and electronic hardware. 

Where You'll Go

Graduates are qualified for immediate employment as an electrical engineering technologist, engineering assistant, or electrical design assistant. Many graduates choose to continue their education by transferring credits to a four-year school to earn a bachelor's degree in engineering. Formal transfer arrangements are in place with the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and the SUNY Institute of Technology (SUNY-IT). Graduates can transfer to either of these institutions' bachelor of engineering technology (BET) programs with junior-level status. 

If you wish to pursue a B.S.E.E. degree in electrical or computer engineering, you should consult your advisor.
