Electrical Trades

Douglas McNamara, class of '13

Doug McNamaraDoug McNamara wants to do a lot of things now that he has graduated with his Alfred State associate degree in electrical construction and maintenance electrician and a BBA in technology management, and he surely will.

“The BBA program seamlessly positioned my technical background into a foundation for higher learning and it has given me a network that has already helped get my foot in the door with an international company,” he said. “I can’t help being excited by all the doors that have opened. This program has been a very, very good choice for me.”
