If you’re a curious person who enjoys learning how things work, an associate degree in electrical engineering might be for you. This degree should help you land an entry-level job assisting electrical engineers or electronics engineers, or prepare you for advanced educational opportunities.
Electrical engineers work with the technology of electricity. From electrical control systems and machinery to electrical power.
The Associate of Science (A.S.) degree prepares you for transfer to a college or university through the Tennessee Transfer Pathway (TTP).
Motlow electrical engineering students learn how to apply mathematical, scientific, and engineering concepts to the design, development, and analysis of technological issues in an array of industries. Electrical theory and related principles are also covered, and students learn how to use these to test and modify electrical machinery, electrical control equipment, and circuitry in industrial and commercial plants and laboratories. Graduates usually work under the direction of engineering professionals, including electrical engineers and technologists.
