About this course
The Electric Power Technology (ELPW) program focuses on the transmission and distribution of electricity. What does that mean? Transmission and distribution means keeping the flow of electricity safe through power lines and other means of transmission until it reaches you, the consumer.
This program helps students understand how the flow of electricity works, the equipment and safety measures used when working with electricity and then provides students with an opportunity to choose one of four specializations. Those that are undecided in their specialization typically have a good idea of what they want to choose after their first semester. An academic advisor or program manager can also assist students if help is needed to determine the best route.
