From electrical contractors to welders and machine tool operators, Alfred State offers a variety of programs that prepare students to launch careers in high-demand professions. Each program provides 1,800 hours of related course work, theory, and hands-on practice, providing graduates with the necessary skills to be successful in these dynamic fields.
ELECTRICAL CONSTRUCTION & MAINTENANCE ELECTRICIAN PROGRAM
The hands-on electrical training provided in the freshman year consists of actual wiring projects off campus, as well as residential wiring projects in our laboratories. Our senior electrical students receive real-life experiences working with the campus maintenance department, trouble-shooting campus equipment, rewiring existing facilities, and designing and installing the electrical systems in the new facilities. Seniors will also design and install photovoltaic systems and wind turbine systems. They will work in the laboratories designing and installing automated projects (incorporating relay logic), PLCs, pneumatics, hydraulics, process control systems, three-phase transformer systems, industrial distribution, and motor theory and repair. All of the freshmen and senior students will utilize the National Electrical Code.
MISSION FOR ELECTRICAL CONSTRUCTION & MAINTENANCE ELECTRICIAN
