Another Red Deer College program has been recognized for the opportunities it creates for students.
RDC’s electrical engineering technology program has received national accreditation from Technology Accreditation Canada.
The recognition reflects the ability to prepare students for the workforce and helps them meet the standards set by The Association of Science and Engineering Technology Professionals of Alberta, known as ASET, the college said in a release.
Graduates from accredited programs are often recognized for their knowledge and skills, leading to increased earning potential and employment opportunities.
“ASET proudly counts many RDC graduates among the ranks of our certified technicians and technologists,” said association CEO Barry Cavanaugh.
“Formal recognition of the electrical engineering technology program ensures more will follow, as students now have a direct route to their professional designations.”
The two-year program prepares students using the applied principles of science and math, to help develop, implement and maintain a broad spectrum of electrical systems.
