What is Electrical Technology?

The Electrical Technology program at Somerset Community College focuses on preparing students for various entry-level electrical positions in industry and the building trades. The study of electrical theory in the classroom and the practical application of that theory in labs provide the foundation of this program.

This program is versatile in offering two different diploma tracks—Construction Electrician and Industrial Electrician. Students enrolled in the program are required to achieve a minimum grade of “C” in the technical core and in those courses selected as technical electives.

What are my career choices?

Since electricity has become an integral part of everyday life, an adequate supply of electrical power is necessary, as well as a reliable system for efficient utilization. Because of this there is a continuing need for qualified electrical technicians.
Graduates of the MIT: Electrical Technology program at Somerset Community College, acquire the knowledge and skills for employment in such career areas as electrical engineering technicians, power plant technicians, in electrical construction, in industrial maintenance and as technical representatives.
