Electrical & Instrumentation Technology
The Electrical & Instrumentation Technology AAS Degree is designed to prepare students for positions in the installation, repair and maintenance of commercial electrical and electronic equipment. Graduates of the program can select from a broad spectrum of electronics/electrical career options. For examples of some of the career options see the section “Employment Data” below. The first year of the program begins with a foundation of basic electronics/electrical systems. Then in the second year the student can decide on what area of electronics or industrial electrical technology they wish to pursue. In addition to our standard Electrical & Instrumentation Technology degree, we offer three additional learning options within the program: Electric Utility Lineworker, apprenticeships with two different Arizona mining companies, and internships with local electronics companies.
