Electrical Engineering Technology
Students who complete the Associate of Applied Science in Electrical Engineering Technology can pursue a career in a wide variety of industries. Many things rely on electrical engineering: computers, telephones, radio, television, radar and sonar, just to name some examples.
The Central Ohio Technical College Engineering Technology (ET) program prepares graduates for exciting careers in a diverse array of STEM-based career paths.
Industrial Electrician Certificate
Students who earn the Industrial Electrician Certificate will work closely with Electrical Engineers to design and develop industrial equipment. The Industrial Electrician Certificate offers students an introduction to the field of Electrical Engineering, an opportunity to learn CAD, and to enter the workforce as Engineering Technicians. Students who complete the Industrial Electrician Certificate can continue on to pursue an Associate of Applied Science in Electrical Engineering Technology degree.
Technology continues to develop and change at a rapid pace, requiring a workforce with technical knowledge to design, develop, support and maintain the software, hardware and infrastructure required for quality systems.
Unmanned Aircraft Systems
Across the U.S. and around the world, small, unmanned aircraft systems (drones under 55 pounds) are rapidly transforming business and industry. COTC has partnered with the Unmanned Safety Institute (USI) to offer a credit-bearing drone training program that will prepare students to take remote pilot certification exams.
