The Electrical Technology Diploma Program prepares individuals to apply technical knowledge and skills to install, operate, maintain, and repair electric apparatus and systems such as residential, commercial, and industrial electric-power wiring; and DC and AC motors, controls, and electrical distribution panels. Includes instruction in the principles of electronics and electrical systems, wiring, power transmission, safety, industrial and household appliances, job estimation, electrical testing and inspection, and applicable codes and standards.

Students who complete this diploma will have earned an Industrial Technology certificate by completion. Students who complete this diploma also will earn credit toward completion of the Electronic Engineering Technology, A.A.S. degree. 

The field of electronic engineering is wide and varied, and it offers new and exciting options for college students. Iowa Western’s Electronic Engineering Technology program can prepare you to enter four primary electronics areas:

  • Computers 
  • Telecommunications
  • Bio-medical electronics
  • Industrial electronics 

Working toward an Associate of Applied Science degree, you’ll also be versed in high technology theory in industrial electronics, microelectronics, and optoelectronics. You’ll start by studying basic electricity concepts and advance toward more complex devices and systems.

Field trips give students onsite experience. You’ll also get networking experience, which is always helpful when searching for employment.
