At the successful completion of the program curriculum, students will be able to:

  1. Design and draft all electrical systems for commercial buildings, including low-voltage signaling, interior and exterior lighting, and general power distribution.
  2. Perform all engineering calculations to determine amperage, voltage, phase, resistance, and power consumption as needed for design of electrical systems for commercial buildings.
  3. Develop electrical construction cost estimates from complete electrical documents.
  4. Interpret and apply all applicable codes and standards to building design and construction.
  5. Calculate required number of luminaires, specify fixture types, layout, and energy efficient controls and lighting products.
  6. Calculate loads and power requirements, specify required power panels, branch circuit conductors, raceways, and overcurrent protection.
  7. Design and draft service entrance equipment including service disconnects, system grounding, and metering.
  8. Assist in design of high-voltage power distribution systems including sizing and specifying transformers, pads, vaults, conductors, and termination equipment and components.
  9. Perform all advanced cad operations and functions necessary to draft final electrical plans including floor plans, schedules, notes, and diagrams.
  10. Assist in preparing electrical project specifications.
  11. Compile data and compose engineering reports and correspondence.
  12. Perform calculations to determine amperage, voltage, resistance, and power requirements as needed for electrical system design.
  13. Evaluate electrical system designs by comparing with original design specifications using engineering skills.
  14. Review project instructions and criteria to ascertain specifications, procedures, and objectives for design of complete electrical systems.
  15. Review project instructions and specifications to identify, modify,  and plan all needed building electrical systems.
