This program provides in-depth instruction in the theories and principles of electricity. You'll study and learn to interpret and apply the requirements of the National Electric Code for designing electrical layouts, installation methods, and the maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair of electrical circuits and equipment. Practical (hands-on) application of the classroom theory is the main emphasis of the laboratory work. You'll assist in the design and installation of the electrical installations of many projects both on and off campus. In your senior year, you'll create completely automated projects in the lab using PLCs, pneumatics, motors, and process controls.Northland Logo
