  NABCEP Registered Provider Photovoltaic Associate   Tower climbing preparation

Program Overview

Student in KCC solar lab learning hands-on about solar energy.

The Electrical Technology program prepares students to construct, install, maintain, troubleshoot, and repair electrical circuits and systems. Basic knowledge, fundamental skills and industry standards will be emphasized as students learn to work in the field of electrical technology. All degree-seeking students in Electrical Technology take the same common core of freshman-level courses; then develop skills in the specialization area of Renewable Energy Technology.

KCC offers three other Electrical Technology specialization tracks: Industrial Electrical Technology, Industrial Instrumentation and Process Control, and Industrial Machinery Maintenance. Students will be required to purchase a minimum set of components and/or tools in some courses. Electrical Technology graduates are generally prepared to enter electrical technology programs at selected colleges and universities with junior status.
