The Energy Technician at LaGuardia Community College program prepares students for initial employment in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering technology. Energy technicians work in high-demand, growing fields related to computers, cellular phones, and global positioning systems (GPS) technologies. The students in the program will be exposed both to the formal principles of engineering and to hands-on laboratory projects. The labs are well-equipped with the latest equipment used in engineering practice and research. A wide range of computer software is readily accessible to engineering students.
Skills You Will Learn
What makes this major unique?
The Energy Technician major is perfect for students with an interest in math and science who also enjoy hands-on activities, including exploring and tinkering with electrical circuits and mechanical devices.
The Energy Technician major is designed for students who wish to directly enter the workforce as technicians, operators, and other positions in the field which do not require a bachelor’s or advanced degree. Although Energy Technician majors do have the ability to transfer to 4-year colleges, students who know they wish to pursue Engineering jobs should carefully consider the Engineering AS or other STEM AS programs (Physical Sciences, Liberal Arts: Math & Science, Computer Science, etc.).
This major is intended for students who wish to immediately enter the workforce. Associate of Applied Science degrees are still transferable, although less credits may transfer. Speak to an advisor for more information. Transfer possibilities include Bachelor’s in Engineering or Physics programs.
