plant operators and Instrumentation and Control technicians make Good Money and
are in High Demand due to the aging workforce of the Pacific Gas and
PG&E Sponsored Program
Degree and Certification Programs:
The Electromechanical Technology program is a two year degree program which provides a sound
foundation for jobs as an Engineering Technician in most industries utilizing
electromechanical controls and computerized electronics.
This curriculum includes fundamental training in all
areas of electronics including analog, digital and microprocessor circuitry as
well as motor control circuits, fluid and pneumatic systems and programmable
logic controllers. The
program also provides specialized training in two elective certificate options:
This option provides high tech
training for technician jobs in the Power Industry as well as any industry that
deals with controlling processes such as petroleum and chemical processes
including waste treatment plants. The
emphasis is on the maintaining and repairing the electromechanical equipment
that runs the plant operation. Graduates
of this certificate will be qualified for jobs as Instrumentation and Control
(I&C) and Electrical Technicians in the power industry.
The Electro-Mechanical Technology degree is not designed to be a transfer program but to provide students with industry applicable skills within a two-year period. However, the program is currently being linked with four-year industrial technology programs such as Fresno State that will provide students with a path for continuing their degree studies.
This option provides high tech training for jobs in
Robotics Automation and Manufacturing Automation fields.
Graduates of this certificate will also be qualified for jobs as Robotic
and Manufacturing Automation Engineering Technicians in many aspects of the
automated manufacturing and control electronics fields
