Industrial Electronics Technology

Today's average household consumes 31.5kWh of electricity a day by lighting your home, running your air conditioning or heat, and powering your appliances. Do you ever wonder how that electricity was generated or how that electricity got from the power plant to your house? Ever wondered how a nuclear station works? The Industrial Electronics program can answer these and many more questions about producing, transmitting, and distributing electrical power. Students gain hands-on experience maintaining and troubleshooting industrial equipment used in today's power plants and manufacturing facilities.

Industrial Electronics Technology will prepare you to pursue virtually any career with “technician” in the description. The program provides a solid foundation in DC and AC electricity and electronics as well as solid state electronics. You'll learn from hands-on courses in basic motor controls theory, ladder logic, and control wiring progress to advanced motor controls applications such as variable frequency drives, DC drives, and Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) integration. The program covers digital logic basics, moves into the foundations of PLCs, and culminates in Advanced PLC applications using a variety of programmable controllers. To develop multiple skills, you'll have the option to take courses in robotics and hydraulics and pneumatics. Additional skill-sets centered on employability skills and quality control help to further equip you for any number of multi-skilled technician positions.
