Electrical Systems Technology (AAS) A35130BR

Purpose

The Electrical Technology curriculum is designed to provide training for persons interested in the installation and maintenance of electrical systems found in residential, commercial and industrial facilities.

Course work, most of which is hands-on, will include such topics as AC/DC theory, basic wiring practices, digital electronics, programmable logic controllers, industrial motor controls, the National Electric Code, and other subjects as local needs require.

Graduates should qualify for a variety of jobs in the electrical field as an on-the-job trainee or apprentice, assisting in the layout, installation, and maintenance of electrical systems.

Admission Requirements and Special Conditions

A high school diploma (or equivalent), satisfactory scores on college placement tests (or equivalent) and a minimum GPA in English and mathematics are required. If students have deficiencies in English and/or mathematics, RCC offers pre-college courses to prepare students for the Electrical Systems Technology curriculum.

This is not a Transfer Program.

The BR, or Bridge program is intended for students who may be interested in pursuing a four-year degree in this field. THIS IS NOT A TRANSFER PROGRAM. However, the selection of Universal General Education Transfer Component (UGETC) courses will reduce the number of additional courses required for admission to the four-year institution. Before selecting this program, contact the four-year institution(s) in which you are interested to verify entrance requirements.

Admission to this program requires prior approval from the Industrial Technology Programs Department Chairperson.
