Students are typically able to enroll in an associate degree program as undergraduates. These credentials tend to be popularly regarded as partial bachelor’s degrees. Individuals with prior certificates in their field might find that they are able to apply those credits in order to accelerate the acquisition of a degree, depending on the institution.

What is an associate degree in electrical engineering? These programs are often focused on practicality rather than theory, and students can learn how to safely map, lay, and repair electrical lines in residential and/or commercial buildings, or they may study computer hardware systems. Students are likely to encounter business courses, such as accounting and statistics, as well as engineering courses examining recent technology relevant to professional engineers.

Electrical engineers with some experience might benefit from the exposure to new and advanced technology skills many of these programs offer. Newcomers to the field might also develop crucial business and engineering skills from the practical classes.

An associate degree in this subject is usually awarded after two to three years of undergraduate-level courses. Many institutions offer these programs at different costs. Check with all of the alternatives before deciding on a course of action.

Electrical engineers are present in many industries, from technology research to commercial service. Engineers usually focus on a specialty, working in teams to overcome complex and multifaceted challenges. One example might be a sensor engineer. This individual would likely be required to work with electrical architectures and designs to bring purpose-driven hardware to market. An electrical engineering graduate might also find a job as a refrigeration engineer. This position, often available in hospitals or manufacturing centers, would be responsible for the maintenance and repair of critical fans, pumps and motors in refrigeration systems.

Education might offer a chance to put your career on the fast track. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
