Electrical Systems Technology (ELT)

Fayette, Hamilton, & Sumiton Campuses

Electrical Technicians install and maintain all of the electrical and power systems for homes, businesses, and manufacturers. They install and maintain the wiring and control equipment through which electricity flows. Technicians also install, calibrate, and maintain electrical equipment in a wide range of fields. Imagine an automated manufacturing line: a large conveyor system moves unfinished products down the line, robotic welding arms bond the different parts together, and hydraulic lifts move the finished products. All these complex machines need technicians to install and service them to make sure they function properly. Job opportunities for electrical technicians may include residential and commercial wiring, industrial plant operations, automated manufacturing, renewable energy resources, manufacturing engineering, and industrial electronics.
