Electrician

The critical role tradespeople play in society is often overlooked. This is especially true when you're talking about electricians. Just think, if electricians didn't exist or were in short supply, you may not have lights in your home, power to work your appliances, or the ability to charge your electronics. An electrician major will allow you to learn everything there is to know about how electricity functions, how it's used in homes and commercial spaces, and how to install, maintain, and repair systems. You'll gain a thorough understanding of wiring, safety, job estimation, and local codes and standards. After graduation, you'll be equipped to take on employment as an electrical engineer, electronic technician, or electrician. Furthering your education will open up even more career opportunities in the future.
