Power, Energy and Transportation Systems

The understanding of the use and control of power, energy, and transportation is of major importance in today’s society.  This area concentrates on programmable logic controllers (PLCs), electronics, electrical controls, engines, and fluid power systems.  Industry needs people who can communicate their knowledge and ideas while designing, trouble shooting, and repairing those systems.  Students will gain a working knowledge of power, energy and transportation systems they need to succeed.
