About Our Program
If you’ve ever been curious how toys, games, and cars operate from the inside out, you may be a perfect candidate for HFC's Electrical Technology (ET) program. Math and critical thinking skills form the foundation of electronics, automation, and robotics.
Our program will give you a powerful background in electrical and electronic theory, which is solidified by a strong emphasis on its application in a practical modern laboratory. Students will have the opportunity to work in our ET SuperLab, which boasts state-of-the-art technology and equipment for multiple disciplines, as well as provides students with the ability to be self-directed learners and simulate a true work environment.
A solid understanding of basic and complex electronic principles as they relate to industrial, commercial and consumer applications will be achieved with completion of an associate degree at HFC.
Electrical Technology provides the understanding and skills needed for Industrial Automation, Robotics, and advanced data-collecting systems. By learning the fundamentals of electricity, components like integrated circuits and microprocessors, you can develop the skills to become an Electrical Technician, Field Technician or Lab Technician.
The HFC Electrical Technology SuperLab has state-of-the-art controllers, factory simulators and robotics technology that is found in large and small scale industry today. Students can work on and troubleshoot advanced integrated manufacturing systems in their studies. The program recently expanded its industrial controllers lab equipment, providing both Rockwell and Siemens Controls technology, which are the most important brand names in manufacturing today.
