Electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic and the appropriate controlling devices peculiar to each constitute the main body of the curriculum. Each is covered at length. Students learn hands on experience in areas such as electrical wiring-residential and national electric code, industrial electronics, industrial fluid power, electric motor control and other related areas of study. Students who elect this program should have a minimum background in mathematics, be able to use analytical analysis to determine cause and effect, and have good mechanical ability and dexterity.
