Energy and Power

Industrial Technology

Students will have the opportunity to learn skills in industrial electricity systems, fluid power systems, mechanical drive systems, and programmable logic controllers and process controls. Students will learn to program robotics and mechatronics. Mechatronics is a subset of robotics, a branch of technology that focuses on the design of automated machinery. Mechatronics is a diverse field that includes elements of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and computer science. Program graduates will have the skills they need to move into manufacturing as well as careers in the production industry.

Power Production and Distribution

Learn about Energy and Power through hands-on projects to understand the interplay of the generation, distribution and the use of energy. Students will work in small groups to research, design, build and evaluate their solutions to the problems they are presented. They will collect and analyze data, study and modify their prototypes and practice project management while learning how to work and collaborate in a team environment. The Energy and Power program will cover how to design and construct motors, pumps, heat exchangers, hydraulics and pipeline systems. Students will explore renewable and non-renewable energy generation, transformers and the electrical grid to understand how energy travels along power lines. Five types of energy will be covered – mechanical, heat, chemical, electromagnetic and nuclear power.

Electric Utility Lineworker

Keep power flowing as an Electric Utility Lineworker. Students will learn to install and repair electrical power systems. Students will study safety, electrical theory, truck operations, construction specifications, pole climbing, line construction, single-phase to three-phase conversion, underground distribution, transformer installation and service, substations, schematic diagrams and tools of the trade. Students will learn to use fall arrest and positioning systems within OSHA regulations and the manufacturer’s recommendations. Student should be in good general health and good physical ability and be comfortable working at high elevations or confined spaces. After completing the program, graduates will enter the power industry as pre-apprentice lineworkers, substation technicians or equipment operators.
