Electrical Systems



Electrical-Electronics Systems

Associate of Applied Arts & Sciences

Electricity and electronics are the bonding agents for much of today’s technology society. Building a body of knowledge and understanding of these topical areas provides the ability to work with electrical applications involving transformers, AC-DC motors, electrical-electronic controllers, sequencers and sensors. Foundational skills include understanding and application of the National Electrical Code, PLC, electrical wiring techniques, wiring system installation, raceways, and conduit bending.

The WSCC Electricity/Electronics Program is available in an Open-Entry/Open-Exit (OE/OE) format allowing for enrollment at any time throughout the year. Employers have great flexibility in building training programs by ala carte selection of modules from a menu of skill sets. Students have an increased ability to work while earning a college degree since the hours of delivery are modeled to fit work schedules, including both online and hands-on training.
