Electrical Engineering Technology

The CTE Electrical Engineering Technology courses offer a mid-level understanding of both principles and skills from electrical and electronics used in our modern world. Through a combination of classroom and intense laboratory exposure, students are prepared for entry into a range of career opportunities in manufacturing, healthcare, telecommunications, and preparation for a career as an electrican.

The program covers the basic principles of electricity and proceeds to the concepts of solid state components such as diodes, transistors, integrated circuits, and microprocessor systems. Advanced courses show how these fundamental principles are applied to machine control, computers, power supplies, amplifiers, oscillators, industrial control, and instrumentation systems. Courses simulate actual working conditions in fully-equipped laboratories where students put electrical-electronics theory into practice. Along with laboratory experiences setting up circuits, troubleshooting, and calibrating systems, computer-simulated circuit analysis is used in the majority of the courses.  Successful completers of the program will receive an electrical engineering technology Certificate. This may then be used either for job placement or to further their education at either Henry Ford in the completion of their Associates degree in one year or to transfer to another college. Attendance history must meet the standard of the sending school district and additional prerequisites may be required by Henry Ford College.
