Electrical / Electronics

The IRSC Electronics Engineering Technology and Electrical Power Technology programs have been at the forefront of the most advanced modern technologies.

Once You Complete the Program

The College established a nuclear curriculum in response to the immediate need of FPL to replace retiring workers, update skills of the existing workforce and create a career ladder for incumbent workers and additional opportunities for professional development and advancement. Additionally, and in association with its Laser-Tec Regional Center of Excellence in Lasers and Fiber Optics, IRSC offers courses in cutting-edge technologies, such as laser-photonics; robotics-manufacturing; solar energy; telecommunications; biomedical electronics; and computer support technology.

Electrical Power Technology

Electrical power technicians are part of a highly skilled, well-paying career that keeps the wheels of industry turning! They perform preventative, corrective and overhaul services on complex industrial plant systems; solve equipment problems; and determine optimum equipment functioning.

The Electrical Power Technology program has the following options: instrumentation and control and electrical (ICE) specialization, mechanical and radiation protection.

The Electrical Power Technology program has specific admissions requirements. In addition to an admissions application, candidates must successfully pass a series of tests prescribed by our industrial partner, Florida Power and Light.

Once You Complete the Electrical Power Technology Program

The demand for electronic engineering technicians is at an all-time high because of the large number of baby boomers retiring and industries expansion. The Electronics Engineering Technology Degree offers specialization options in lasers and photonics, robotics and industrial automation, computer technology, fiber optics and telecommunications. Graduates can apply their learning to jobs in industries such as telecommunications, medicine, manufacturing, national defense, space exploration, scientific research and nanotechnology.

Electronics Engineering Technology

Electronics engineering technology is the foundation for all modern technologies. Any technology field that claims to be advanced or high-tech relies on electronic components and circuitry. Lasers, fiber-optics, robotics, automation, wireless networks, biomedical equipment, space exploration and industrial processing are cutting-edge technologies made possible by electronic technology. Electronics engineering technology enables 21st-century technology to become faster, smarter and more exciting! Technicians install, service, maintain, troubleshoot and repair electronic systems, including robots and automation systems.
