Upon successful completion of the program, the graduate will:

  1. Integrate electrical systems installations consistent with architectural considerations.
  2. Solve complex problems through use of decision making, critical thinking.
  3. Make correlations between basic scientific information about the nature of matter as it relates to understanding electrical theory.
