Dunwoody College of Technology has launched its Power & Construction Engineering Technology program, providing an online bachelor’s completion degree option for electrical graduates looking to advance into positions as solar energy systems engineers, electrical construction or design engineers, senior project managers, estimators, or drafters.
Power & Construction Engineering Technology is a specialized electrical engineering degree that focuses on the built environment – from vertical and horizontal buildings to infrastructure, including utilities. Graduates with a two-year degree in electrical construction or electrical design are eligible to transfer into the online program with part- and full-time options.
“At Dunwoody, we work closely alongside partners to understand the skills and training needed to fulfill the hiring pipeline ensuring that our students are the strongest candidates for the job,” states Polly Friendshuh, dean of construction sciences and building technology.
“Through extensive industry research, we identified a need for electrical and solar system engineers and are proud to offer the Power & Construction Engineering Technology program to current and future students,” Friendshuh adds. “Innovative pilot programs like this one help transform our learners into leaders and students into collaborators and creative problem solvers.”
