Electrical engineering technicians work with electrical engineers to design and maintain a variety of circuits and systems, from PC networking to industrial electronics and communications systems. A combination of classroom study and hands-on lab work leads to a final capstone project in which you will design and complete a project that includes a hardware and software component, a written report and oral presentation, budget, schematics, and a daily log of progress. General education classes in writing, speech, sociology, and psychology help prepare you for success.
