The Electrical Master Technician curriculum is designed to meet the diverse needs of the construction and industrial sectors of the electrical field. This curriculum broadens the student’s perspective on the industry with training in alternative energy sources, building control systems, predictive maintenance and automation.
The Electrical Master Technician curriculum builds on the strengths of a two-year degree in Electrical Construction or Industrial Electrical in a 3rd year. It adds cutting-edge technology in medium and high voltage, instrumentation, fiber optics, structured wiring, HVAC/R and other building controls.
The successful completion of the Master Technician program exceeds the number of classroom hours required by the Electrical Boards of North Dakota, Minnesota and South Dakota, thus qualifying graduates for a full year (2,000 hours) work exemption as typically granted by those boards. The NDSCS Electrical Technology program is the only program in the North Dakota University System qualified to receive this credit for hours.
This program also exempts graduates from the mandatory classroom training required by North Dakota law (ND Century Code Section 43-09-11) for all registered electrical apprentices.
