Program Description - In response to a rising demand for skilled technicians who are qualified to work on a day-to-day basis with building engineers, Ranken has developed the Electrical Systems Design Technology program. Unique in the St. Louis region, this program provides four semesters of training and instruction leading to an associate degree. Students receive hands-on training in electrical wiring, industrial controls, circuitry, machinery and power distribution. In the final semester, students are required to complete an electrical design and layout project, including a complete set of drawings, details and other necessary documentation. Program graduates will have great flexibility in career options and are qualified for employment as junior electrical designers, electrical estimators, insurance inspectors, manufacturers’ sales representatives and electrical engineering associates..
