"Students not only learn electrical circuit concepts, they enjoy hands-on training through our robust lab experiences." -Dr. Matt Lawrence, Dept. Chair, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Technology

“The electrical engineering technology program helped to reinforce and expand upon skills that I had learned as a technician in the military. The hands-on aspect means that you get to spend as much time in a lab as in a classroom. It’s not enough to know how a system is supposed to work; you have to be able to fix it when it doesn’t.” -Matthew Porterfield, ’16

As an Alfred State student, Trentin has been able to put his education to use in some amazing ways, including programming, installing, and designing a robot arm as part of his senior project. He also secured an internship with Corning Inc., where he gained real-world experience and landed a job even before he graduated.

“They offered me a full-time position as a robotic automation controls engineer.”
