Electric (Power-Lighting Systems) Contacts
This degree is designed for students pursuing employment or upgrade in employment in the fields of building electrical power and lighting systems design utilizing Manual and CAD drafting applications in Architectural, Engineering, or Construction related offices.
Engineering Design Technology is studied in lecture and drafting practice classes. Mathematics, science, and engineering fundamentals, which are all related to the content of this program, are studied in the Engineering Design Technology program or through recommended elective courses. General Education courses complete the recommended classes for the Engineering Design Technology curriculum.
Recommended High School Preparation
Completion of English and general mathematics. It is desirable, but not required, that a student complete courses in drafting, industrial arts shop courses, one year of algebra, plane geometry, general science, and introduction to computers.
Normal student expenses for textbooks, personal equipment, and supplies may be required. These expenses may vary each semester. If these expenses create a financial burden, students should consult the Financial Aid Office for possible assistance.
Upon completion of this program, the student will be able to:
- prepare electrical plans for buildings that conform with current industry standards.
- demonstrate an understanding of the process of electrical design by applying design principles to building design projects.
Associate in Science Degree
The Electric (Power-Lighting Systems) Associate in Science (A.S.) degree may be obtained by completion of the required program, plus general education requirements, plus sufficient electives to meet a 60-unit total. See SCC graduation requirements.
Certificate of Achievement (COA)
The Certificate of Achievement may be obtained by completion of the required program with grades of “C” or better or equivalent.
