Power Plant (Electrical Utilities) Technology
This program prepares graduates to perform basic operating functions required in electric utility power plants and other related industries. Students gain knowledge in electrical theory, electrical machinery and controls, power plant operations, boiler, turbine, and generator operations, power plant instrumentation, and pollution control equipment. In addition, college writing, oral communications, and general education form an integral part of the program. Upon successful completion of the program, students are prepared for entry-level employment in the utility industry.
Students in this program are awarded academic credit for skills-related experience and training to compliment the academic coursework at YSU. Graduates of this program are awarded an Associate of Technical Studies (ATS) Degree.
