Electrical Systems Technology

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

All of our current technology depends on electrical systems and those with the training to design, install, maintain, and repair them. If you are looking for a skilled, adaptable, hands-on career that will open up opportunities in many industries, the Electrical Systems Technology program at Gaston College is a great start.

One Program With Many Options

Renewable energy is experiencing tremendous growth as an industry around the world. It will almost certainly continue to see an increased demand for experienced electricians, technicians, and helpers. Gaston College is among the few programs in our region to offer a specialized certificate in renewable energy. That training is a cornerstone of our degree program, as well.

Of course, renewable energy is only one of many options you will have in residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. Our hands-on labs and courses will help you master reading schematics and design, as well as programming, installation, and troubleshooting skills you can immediately put to work as an electrical helper or maintenance technician.

Education that Fits With the Rest of Your Life

Many students place a very high value on flexibility because there are so many other important responsibilities to manage while investing in their education. That is why courses at Gaston College fit your schedule and needs, with options for day and night classes. You can earn an associate of applied science degree in as little as five semesters, or a diploma, or one of our specialized certificates. We have an affordable, accessible way for you to get the education and training you need while balancing other priorities.
