Residential, commercial, and industrial facilities depend on electronic equipment for a variety of functions. Electrical/electronics technology involves installing and maintaining this equipment, drawing and interpreting schematic wiring, controls, and mechanical diagrams, and measuring and interpreting electrical and electronic parameters. Electrical and electronics are two distinct types of equipment, although much equipment contains both electrical and electronics components. In general, electrical portions of the equipment provide power, while electronic components control the device. College of The Albemarle’s Electrical/Electronics Technology Program is designed to train students to install, modify, troubleshoot and repair basic electro-mechanical systems employing electrical, electronic, and mechanical devices.
Successful graduates of the Electrical/Electronics Technology curriculum often find employment opportunities in the electrical/electronics field as apprentices, assistants in layout, installation, and maintenance of electrical/electronic systems. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment of Electrical/Electronics technicians is expected to grow 3-9% over the next ten years, and the median salary is approximately $36,000.
These classes are only offered at the Edenton-Chowan Campus.
