Power, Energy and Transportation Systems

An understanding of the use and control of power, energy, and transportation is of major importance in our communities. And teachers who specialize in this area are in high demand. You’ll gain a working knowledge of programmable logic controllers (PLCs), electronics, electrical controls, engines, and fluid power systems. A required semester of student teaching will allow you to put that knowledge into practice.

See our University Catalog for more information about these courses.
