What has been happening in your career since graduating from Ecotech?
I have recently moved to Phoenix, AZ and I am working at SolarCity. I am really excited about my new career and where it's going to take me.
On or off the conventional grid, electrical engineering technicians help keep the machines and systems of the green revolution humming.
The Electrical Engineering Technology program at Ecotech Institute is designed to give graduates a solid foundation in renewable energy fundamentals while specializing in electrical engineering technology. According to Program Director Patrick Longstreth, "Electrical engineering techs work in a lot fields, like biomedical, avionics and data communications. Our curriculum is designed so graduates can work in those areas, but it's different from some other programs in that our graduates come out with a two-bag skill set. They have the knowledge of electrical engineering but can apply it to the clean energy world. I think that makes them a more valuable employees."
