Electrical & Electromechanical Technology

  • Welcome

    SCC’s Electrical & Electromechanical Technology program trains technicians to operate, test and maintain unmanned, automated, servo-mechanical or electromechanical equipment. Electrical engineering technicians help design, develop, test, and manufacture electrical and electronic equipment such as communication equipment; radar, industrial and medical monitoring or control devices; navigational equipment; and computers. Electromechanical engineering technicians combine knowledge of mechanical engineering technology with knowledge of electrical and electronic circuits to design, develop, test, and manufacture electronic and computer-controlled mechanical systems.

    You're a Good Fit for this program because . . .

    Overview

    For decades, SCC’s Electrical and Electromechanical Technology program has served the construction and manufacturing industries, power companies, design engineers and maintenance fields with highly trained graduates.

    Mission

    The mission of the Electrical Technology program is to prepare students for employment in residential, commercial or industrial wiring. This includes training for careers in public utilities, sales, maintenance, service and repair. The mission of the Electromechanical Technology program is to prepare students to become employed as maintenance supervisors, machine repair technicians and service representatives. This includes training for careers in hydraulic, pneumatics, power transmissions and engineering assistants.

    Electrical Technology Focus

    Electrical students receive classroom instruction on many topics, including fundamental electrical principles, the National Electrical Code, residential, commercial and industrial wiring, repair and maintenance of electric motors and generators, variable speed drivers and digital control systems, predictive maintenance, programmable logic controllers, robotics, and communication systems, including fiber-optics, data communication and alarm systems. Approximately half of the training time will take place in a laboratory setting where students will apply classroom theory.

    Electromechanical Technology Focus

    Electromechanical students focus on electrical principles, manufacturing processes, welding, electrical and mechanical repair of machinery, hydraulics, electric motors and generators, and many other components and processes directly related to electromechanical technology. Through concentrated classroom and hands-on learning, students acquire the ability to construct circuits and do computer aided drafting of mechanical components. Laboratories provide ample opportunity to apply classroom theory and specialized skills.

    Double Focus Opportunity

    Students from either focus may choose to enhance their education by completing approximately 33 credit hours of additional training to become proficient in both focus areas. Electromechanical students focus on electrical principles, manufacturing processes, welding, electrical and mechanical repair of machinery, hydraulics, electric motors and generators, and many other components and processes directly related to electromechanical technology. Through concentrated classroom and hands-on learning, students acquire the ability to construct circuits and do computer aided drafting of mechanical components. Laboratories provide ample opportunity to apply classroom theory and specialized skills.

    Employment Outlook

    Overall employment of technicians is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations, but projected growth and job prospects vary by specialty. Opportunities will be best for individuals with an associate degree or extensive job training in engineering technology. Graduates report an average annual starting salary at $44,304.
