Program Description

ELEUS This track is for students seeking to transfer to the Electric Utility Technology, Substation Option, A.A.S. program. Students must satisfy specific requirements in order to be admitted to the Electric Utility Technology Program which is offered in joint partnership with FirstEnergy Corp. Students should speak to a counselor before selecting general education and career studies courses to ensure course selection aligns with their intended program. For contact information and admission requirements, see Electric Utility Technology Program in the College Catalog and select the link for First Energy Registration Information.

Graduates of this program will be able to:

- Measure and verify calculated values for standard analog laboratory instruments such as the oscilloscope, VOM, DVM, audio generator and frequency counter
- Analyze and measure circuit currents, resistance and voltages using Kirchhoff’s laws, Mesh Analysis, Nodal Analysis, Thevenin’s Theorem and Norton’s Theorem
- Calculate impedance, currents, voltages, and phase angles for AC circuits
- Perform high-level maintenance in electrical substation and switchyards
- Apply proper cable/pulling bus work techniques
- Safety install and use batteries, fuses, transformers, regulators/reclosers, circuit breakers and capacitors
