Stephen King on Electrical Engineering
We offer two engineering majors. You can choose Electrical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering. Both programs are designed to give you the fundamental classes necessary to open a world of opportunity for you. As a graduate, you can immediately begin working in the industry or can transfer to a four-year college and earn a bachelor's degree.
Electrical Engineering Technology - Instrumentation, Control & Electrical
Electrical Engineering Technology - Instrumentation, Control & Electrical - The EET ICE program is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment where you will learn to design, operate, and maintain power and control systems. You will learn installation, operation, and servings of electrical equipment in several different industries, including manufacturing, power, polymer, metallurgical, oil and gas, and others.
As a graduate of the program, you can expect to find career opportunities in instrumentation, power plant operation, quality control, electrical maintenance, and electrical troubleshooting.
Robotics & Mechatronics
The Robotics & Mechatronics associate degree program blends mechanical and electrical engineering with robotics and control systems to form an interdisciplinary program that maximizes transferable skills. Through robotics courses, students will learn automation, coding, machining processes and computer programming used for programmable logic controllers (PLCs) which run manufacturing lines. Courses focus on honing skills that prepare students for a variety of careers in engineering, industry, and more.
Courses focus on mechanical and electrical engineering, robotic diagnostics and servicing, and automation.
Graduates can work as mechanical engineering technologists to help engineers design, develop, test, and manufacture industrial machinery, consumer products, and other equipment, or go into careers what work with a variety of mechanical systems, learn computer-aided drafting applications, understand simple machines and processes, and more. Some career opportunities for graduates include automotive design, quality assurance, project management, field technician, quality control, and lab testing.
WSCC also provides clear pathways for students to continue their education to earn a bachelor’s degree in Engineering Technology.
