Electrical and Automated Technologies


  Electrical careers in today’s industries require multi-faceted technicians. Electrical and automated control systems are increasingly sophisticated and complex and require specialists in electrical construction, industrial electrical maintenance, or automated and process control systems technology.

Construction electricians install the electrical wiring, devices, fixtures and machinery in residential, commercial and industrial locations in accordance with the National Electrical Code.

Industrial maintenance electricians perform preventive maintenance, diagnostic testing, casualty analysis and corrective maintenance on electrical/electronic equipment and systems such as transformers, electro-mechanical controls, motors, variable speed drives and programmable logic controllers.

Automated and process control systems technicians install, test, align, troubleshoot and repair technically challenging integrated control systems that include electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic components and their associated sensors and instrumentation.
