The Certificate of Achievement and Associate of Science in ElectricalEngineering Technicians is designed to prepare students and workforce to becometechnicians in aerospace, electrical, electronic technology fields by assistingengineers in troubleshooting, maintenance of test equipment, instrumentation oftest equipment, programming, design, develop, test, maintain, and manufactureof products, to communicate professionally both orally and in writing, and towork on team-based projects. The emphases of program are theory-based hands-onapplication, development technical skills, internship, and work-based learning.
· It is estimated that the number of sections core courses to be offered annually will be at least 1
· It is estimated the student annual enrollment in the number of sections is a cohort of 25-30
· It is estimated that the number of program completers per year at the end of second year of program operations will be 20-25
It is estimated that the number of program completers per year at the end of fifth year of program operations will be 40-50
East Los Angeles College (ELAC) is developing a new Associate of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering Technicians, funded by Strong Workforce program, based on the recommendation of the ELAC Engineering Department’s advisory committee and the research conducted by the Center of Excellence (COE). The COE is also recommending that Colleges work with the Los Angeles/Orange County Regional Energy, Construction & Utilities sector navigators, the college’s advisory board and local industry to create programs to meet the workforce demand for Energy, Construction & and related fields workers.
There is an undersupply of trained workers in the Los Angeles/Orange County region, in the region the shortage is 5220 workers. This data is based on occupational demand and supply in the report by Los Angeles/Orange County Center of Excellence (COE).
The focus of this new program is the existing 1 Taxonomy of programs among 10identified which are:
Which they lead to the following Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) System titles and codes:
As current job market demands hands-on and theory-based skilled employees who can communicate with professional engineers in Electrical Engineering field. California Community Colleges have to build Guided Pathways and fill the pipeline of highly hands-on and theory-based skilled employees. Many of the occupations in Electrical Engineering require technicians to have hands-on skills and technical knowledge in Technical Writing, Shop Math & Measurements, Machine Shop Training & Safety, Algebra, Fundamentals AC/DC Circuits, Programmable Logic Controls, Design PCB, Schematic Capture, Test Equipment Instrumentation, Digital Circuits Analysis, Integration and Test.
To accommodate and to train the workforce for thesedemands, a stackable Associate of Science and Certification of Achievementprogram without any prerequisite is developed in Electrical Engineering Technicians. This program is mapped to theskills and knowledge as described in SOC 17-3021, SOC 17-3023, SOC 17-3024, SOC 51-2022 and SOC 49-9071 ofBureau of Labor Statistics.
The program is designed to prepare students and workforce to become technicians in aerospace, electrical, electronic technology fields by assisting engineers in troubleshooting, maintenance of test equipment, instrumentation of test equipment, programming, design, develop, test, maintain, and manufacture of products, to communicate professionally both orally and in writing, and to work on team-based projects. The emphases of program are theory-based hands-on application, development technical skills, internship, and work-based learning. See list of courses below
